Mouser and Grant Imahara launch 'Generation Robot' series

Mouser Electronics is teaming up for the fourth consecutive year with celebrity engineer Grant Imahara for the latest edition of the Empowering Innovation Together program, the Generation Robot video series. Since 2015, the program has featured projects ranging from bringing superhero technology to life to the amazing benefits of technologies that are shaping smarter cities.

The five videos in the Generation Robot series will take viewers to locations in the US, Germany, Japan, South Korea and Hong Kong, highlighting the people, companies and machines that are changing how we view and interact with robots. The first video sees Imahara visit the Institute for Robotics and Intelligent Machines at Georgia Tech to meet with Executive Director Dr Magnus Egerstedt, where he explores the basics of what constitutes a robot, the myths and misconceptions of robotics, and Dr Egerstedt’s greatest hopes and fears for the advancement of robot technology.

The series will examine the entire spectrum of robotics technology — including the challenge of shifting from a purely technological impact to one that has social and moral implications. It will showcase everything from robotics theory to real-world uses of robots that seem like science fiction to how we will navigate an equal human/robot world.

“Technology has always been a catalyst for change, such as the invention of the airplane or the internet. And now, another revolution — one that truly could redefine the human experience,” said Imahara. “I’m happy to be part of this new series, which seeks to answer the questions many people have about robots.”

The first video in the series can be viewed below.
