Maker of the Month: Advaith Prakash

Hello Roboteers,

It's time for the Maker of the Month blog, where we will reveal the next active and innovative maker from the SP Robotic Works community for the month of November 2022.

We have chosen a maker whose robotic creations are highly distinctive and extravagant, which have stood out from the crowd in the SP Robotic Works community. The title of Maker of the Month for the November 2022 edition goes to none other than Advaith Prakash.

Advaith Prakash is a maker lab student from Sholinganallur, Chennai. He is much interested in trending technologies and has done a lot of research on humanoid robots and tried projects on that. In his free time, he likes to do coding, create new robots, playing video games and cricket.

He has participated in many project challenges conducted by SP Robotic Works like Diwali, Independence day challenges, and National Coding and Robotic Challenge (NCRC), where he qualified for the second round. 

Apart from robotics and technology, he performs well in school examinations and gets good grades. As he likes video games, he wants to become a game developer and wants to join epic games or EA sports as a professional job. His best project was MediCare Robot, created to help people during the covid period. He developed an application named Medicare where you can get almost all covid related assistance and his Robot called Robo Care helps the patients by supplying medicines without any contact with patients.

Advaith’s favorite course in SP Robotics works is the Internet of Things (IOT) as it involves learning python programming, which he had always wanted to learn and working on raspberry pi to make a Home Assistant made him a very interesting course.                                                                         

Let's have a look at some of the amazing projects that he has made so far.

Kudos to Advaith Prakash for all his efforts and hard work!!   

Let us congratulate Advaith for being active in the community and for being crowned as "Maker of the Month for November 2022".

So do you want to be the next one? 

Here are the 4 easiest steps to be followed if you wish to win the award: 

Step 1: Be active in the SPRW Community & App

SPRW conducts various contests via its app and Facebook pages. Regularly check the SPRW app and the SP Robotics feeds page in the website & facebook page for all conducted contests and events.

Step 2: Build a robot just in case

Well, this is the fun part. Just build robots according to the criteria specified in the problem statement. Well, you are also welcome to display your creativity in terms of the features or components used in the robots. If you make maximum use of the components from your kits, you get special brownie points during the selection process.

Step 3: Shoot the Robot- with a camera!

Well, your robot needs to be evaluated by us for you to win. So, take a video of the robot and its features and compile them into a short crisp video. Since it is going to be a monthly event, you are supposed to stick to the deadline. Oh yes, we almost forgot! Share the video with us. Just ensure that the videos are shot in a well-lit environment for the robot to appear in its resplendent form! Also, make sure you have submitted 3 or more self-projects within the span of 30 days

Step 4: Patience earns goodwill!

This is the hard part. We know you will be bristling with excitement after submitting the video. We also appreciate that you will be eager to know how you fared. But, you got to wait until we screen through all the submissions and finally declare you the winner!

Happy Roboting !!!
