CORE20

What is the CORE20?

Robotter 0000001 thru Robotter 0000020

The CORE20 will be the first official 20 members of Robotters. Every Robotters member will receive a unique member number, but the first twenty will receive special benefits and recognition.  For being the first people to recognize our vision and help make it possible by buying a $5000 membership, the CORE20 will receive token stock in the company and VIP access for life.

What are the CORE20 perks?

A CORE20 lifetime membership includes:

  1. Public recognition as a Robotters CORE20 member on Robotters.com (forever)
  2. One of the first 20 official Robotter membership numbers
  3. Lifetime VIP access (for self plus three guests) at all Robotters facilities nationwide*
  4. The opportunity to brag about having helped to create the world’s greatest playground for nerds

* Written into the by-laws

What is Robotters, again?

It’s like TopGolf… but with robots and drones.

Imagine a facility where anyone can walk in at any time and immediately get their hands on a robot or drone. Our motto is Fly it. Drive it. Break it. Fix it. Repeat. Members and daily guests will have the opportunity to engage in a wide variety of increasingly complex challenges that turn education into pure, unmitigated fun. Whether paying by the hour or subscribed to a monthly membership, participants will have full access to our maker space, test wings and competition arena.

TopGolf analogy aside, we like to think that Robotters will be a lot like a video game that people can play in real life.

Where will the funds go?

  • First and foremost, the funds will make it possible for at least 40 human hour/week to be put into the development of Robotters
  • Develop collateral (both analog and digital)
  • Secure corporate sponsorships*
  • Pursue grants
  • Address design questions and complete an architectural plan:
    – How big will the Competition Dome be?
    – How do we create adjacent Test Spaces that can be joined with the Arena for larger events?
    – How can we create a Maker Space that will serve the needs of our local UIL robotics teams while still being usable and safe for younger children?
    – How much room do we need for ancillary offerings like retail, food, private workspaces, storage?

*We currently have soft commitments from Cisco, National Instruments, Microsoft, Dell and several smaller companies that just we just need space & collateral to solidify.
