Tic-Tac-Toe: Wandelbots makes robot unbeatable with its own app

From May 30 to June 2, Wandelbots will present itself at the Hannover Messe. As part of the special presentation “Start – Move – Follow” by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy, the Dresden-based robotics software company is launching a robot app against which trade fair visitors can play the game “Tic-Tac-Toe”, also known as “noughts and crosses”. The crux: the software makes the robot unbeatable.

Hanover/Dresden, May 23, 2022 – This year, more than 2,500 companies will present their technological innovations at the international industrial trade fair alongside Wandelbots. “Our exhibit shows in a playful way that Wandelbots technology can be used to realize a variety of robot applications – both simple robot-human games and, in particular, industrial applications, for example for welding, gluing, in material processing or in the areas of inspection and quality assurance”, says Christian Piechnick, CEO and co-founder of Wandelbots.

Trade fair visitors against robots 
At the Wandelbots booth (Hall 2, Booth C34), visitors can compete against the robot. They start the game by drawing a three-by-three grid on a blank postcard and making the first move. The robot reacts to this and makes the next move. However, the outcome of the game is clear from the start: the robot is invincible.

Wandelbots CEO Christian Piechnick can be found alongside Maria Piechnick, co-founder and Vice President Business Accelerator, at the Wandelbots booth (Hall 2, Booth C34) at Hannover Messe on May 30 and 31, 2022.
