Corse-Martin, the local newspaper in Ajaccio, Corsica, recently wrote about the innovations made in Fab Lab Ajaccio and shed light on two of their new projects.
The first project, Ragnar Robot, a robot equipped with a 3D-camera, can autonomously sort various objects, such as trash, food and manufacturing. The robot was made possible by the Danish company Blue Workforce whose files are all open-source. See what the Ragnar Robot can do at the RoboUniverse Conference & Expo April 11th and 12th in New York City.
The second project, Falla3D, is a portable 3D-printer that allows remote areas to access this new technology making innovation easier.
