Urbi Open Source Contest 2010

A few months ago, Gostai decided to open their Urbi operating system for robots with an A-GPL license. To stimulate the community of programmers using Urbi for robotics or in other domains, Gostai is holding an open contest based on Urbi open source. The project does not have to focus on robotics. Topics can be anything (ie – video games or complex systems) as long as participants use the Urbi open source in the project. Software tools will be provided for free use during the contest (ends December 15, 2010).

Urbi Open Source Contest 2010

Each participant must publish at least one video of the finished project and give their source code to the community with a GPL, BSD or equivalent license.
