Why Spinoza ?

There are several reasons why our robot is called Spinoza and everybody seems to have a different opinion. The following are two most often heard answers:

  • Spinoza (the robot) is a visually guided robot and it will be very smart, therefore it was named after the phlisopher Spinoza who was very smart, but also was a lens grinder!

  • Spinoza (the robot) simply likets to spin !!!
