The video conference of the leading experts in robotics can be watched on the White House Blog Website. Throughout the conference, scientists presented application areas for robots reaching from class rooms and medicine to manufacturing and exploring the Solar System. 


The possibilites in robotics are of wide scope. The video on the conference, features the automated multi-robot furniture assembly by two KUKA youBots (starting at minute 10:40).
