Bambuser Robot Competition

Calling all Bambuser users with a bit of imagination! We were inspired by our friends at Sortedam Ventures who built a "crowd-sourcing" Bambuser robot that can receive remote orders. It looks like they're not the only ones. Check also Give Away Candy that lets you participate from your twitter account.

Do you think you can even do better and want a challenge

Build a Bambuser robot and get the chance to WIN a professional media campaign, and be featured in some of the world's biggest newspapers and TV shows.

To launch the competition Michael from Sortedam Ventures gives us an interview explaining how they built their robot and what you would need. Watch it embedded below, or at Bambuser.

How to participate

Build a Bambuser robot based on Bambuser broadcasting technology (using a smartphone or webcam/DV cam) with crowd-sourced functionality built-in to enable interaction with the audience. To enter the competition a team or individual should:

  1. Create a Bambuser account (if they haven't got one yet)

  2. Broadcast the construction phase and finalized version of the robot using the hashtag #robot. (You can broadcast as many videos as you like)

Competition run time

The competition is running from the 24th of May until the 14th of June 2011.


The video generating the most views and the most appreciation from the Bambuser Crew (based on creativity, engagement and fun) all together, will win a professional media campaign and will be featured in some of the world's biggest newspapers and TV shows.
