A little humanoid robot called Clarence stole the spotlight at today’s opening of the Burdekin’s innovation space – Ideas@108.
Swinburne University brought Clarence to the Burdekin for the opening event to show what can be achieved with ideas and technology.
Burdekin Shire Council Library Services Manager John Scott said he was pleased to finally see Ideas@108 come to fruition.
“Robots, 3D art, 3D prototypes and more can be explored with all the latest technology that is housed here,” he said.
“This is a place where people can bring their ideas to life.”
Burdekin Library is also partnering with TAFE Queensland North to provide short courses for small businesses which will help develop business ideas. These courses will be held in the Ideas@108 space above the Library.
Minister Assisting the Premier on North Queensland, Minister for Seniors and Minister for Disability Services Coralee O’Rourke officially opened the Burdekin Library’s new innovation hotspot, Ideas@108.
