Due to its history and its location on the territory of the Mulhouse conurbation, the Cité du Train could only join this initiative!For the occasion, the museum will host a day of animations and events around robotics on Saturday June 25: JAIM robots.




When budding roboticists meet a couple of artists and arrange to meet in the largest railway museum in Europe - the Cité du Train in Mulhouse - it givesan amazing interactive and didactic work of art.


For several months now,twenty children fromKID’s Lab, accompanied by his manager (Éric Hueber)And
of two artists fromMotoco
(Iva SinticAndSimon Burkhalter)are working to revive one of the most emblematic electric locomotives of the early 20th century: the 2D2 5516.


Using a mobile robot, piloted on a circuit similar to a roller coaster and equipped with 360° cameras,you will have the opportunity to explore the belly of this incredible machine using a virtual reality system. During this trip, your sense of observation and deduction will be put to the test in order tofind the artifacts or signalsallowing you to move forward on the course.



From the Cité du Train or online on the JAIM Festival website, enter the arena ofMakerfight, take control of a sumo robot and knock your opponent down!

Organized by theTechnistub,Makerfightfinds its inspiration in robot fights like very old versions of la French robotics cup  or tournaments such as Battlebots.The principle is based on a simple idea: having fun with robots.


In this new version of the Makerfight, you will be offered two combat modes:  

  • battle arena: it's the rule of every man for himself which applies with two modes of difficulty (1 or 3 lives)

  • Mad Loco: a museum locomotive has gone "crazy" and is trying to escape from the museum! Your mission ? Cooperate with other players and intercept it before it "destroys" your robots.
