During the two-day Sioux Tech Festival, the Ketelhuisplein on Strijp S will be transformed into a Valhalla for techies. Controllable giant robots, a VR pit, a virtual funfair, robot races and much more bring technology to life during the Dutch Technology Week.
Control a giant robot
Control a meter-high robot with a remote exoskeleton. Step into the design of tech artist Freek Wieringa and pull the strings yourself. Or see the reflections on a 3-meter-high steerable horse. Not something you see around every day.
Thanks to new techniques we can now experience things virtually. Anytime, anywhere. The Sioux Holodeck looks at the possibilities of using holographic techniques to improve the process in projects. How can we develop better machines with the help of a virtual world?
Does privacy still exists?
Enter the Mirror Room and discover in a few minutes how private we are in this connected world. We Are Data, the initiators, expose it all. Desirable or madness?
Crack the code
Logical thinking and out-of-the-box technical insight are the golden combination to get out of the Drone Command Unit; the mobile escape room from Sioux. Win back control in 10 minutes and get out!
Mechatronics Trophy – only on Wednesday
Robots from different student teams from Europe take over the Ketelhuisplein during the opening of the Sioux Mechatronics Trophy. An exciting innovative event, open to the public and interesting for young and old.
Project March – only on Thursday
The Project March exoskeleton makes people with paraplegia walk again. The Project March team shows visitors what is involved in the technical field before a first step can be taken. Meet a special social project.
