On July 1st, Dr. David Barnard became the 11th President of the University of Manitoba. Since he is a computer scientist by trade, we were asked to be part of the welcoming ceremony in the Atrium by bringing out one of the robots. It was a bit of an awkward display, since the working infrared connectors for the humanoids were all away on competition, and the back-up cabling was a little finicky, but we still managed to get him up and waving.  More pictures in the associated gallery.
