Gamma 2 Robotics ("G2R"), developers of the world's first commercially available security robot, announced today that its Vigilant robots have been selected to provide 12-hour overnight security for the Denver Mini Maker Faire at the prominent National Western Complex.
Working entirely autonomously during the nights of May 2nd and 3rd, G2R's robots will patrol the event floor to protect the integrity of hundreds of vendor booths and the safety of its anticipated 10,000 - 15,000 attendees. G2R has previously provided overnight security for two other National Western Complex events, both times successfully demonstrating the effectiveness of its robots.
"We are honored to again be selected to provide overnight security for a National Western Complex event, and specifically for an event we as inventors strongly believe in - The Denver Mini Maker Faire," stated G2R President and Co-Founder Jim Gunderson. "Our own robots are the product of much the same creative process as that the event's "Makers" have undergone, and we feel a special obligation to protect their work from damage or theft.
"Moreover, we also appreciate the thousands of attendees who will support these Makers. Our robots contribute to the safety of any large crowd in advance of an event by recognizing and reporting out-of-place objects, aberrations in a large space that a human guard may not notice."
Karen Corliss, Maker Relations, said "Very much in line with the spirit of the Denver Mini Maker Faire, we are excited to have an innovative product such as Vigilant Security Robots providing our overnight security. The Denver Mini Maker Faire is a celebration of the newest ccreations and innovations Denver has to offer and to also have cutting-edge technology helping us in Operations is icing on the cake!"
