“At bottom, robotics is about us. It is the discipline of emulating our lives, of wondering how we work” - Rod Grupen

Creation of different species has always fascinated the humans since the stone age, and in the myriad years of living, mankind has himself evolved to create his own species - the robots with artificial intelligence. We get amazed by robots because they are a reflection of us; they are machines that can mimic life. What if we told you that you could get very close to seeing the evolution?

Being one of India’s first ever institutes to train students in the field of Humanoid Robotics, recognised by the Honourable former President of India - Mrs.Pratibha Patil and awarded by several celebrities globally, A-SET Training and Research Institute is all set to put you on the time machine!

A-SET Training and Research Institute joins hands with Pragyan 2017 to give you an exhibition, ‘A-Set Robotics’, a geeky display of robots that are too intelligent to handle!



The evolution of the brain-computer interface holds a lot of excitement due to its potential to elevate and drastically improve every sphere of life. One of the innovative creations in this field is the brain controlled helicopter- Puzzlebox Orbit presented by Pantech Solutions in association with Pragyan 2017.

With the aid of EEG headset, and Bluetooth as the medium of communication, the Orbit can analyze your brain waves and hover accordingly. It is even possible to map a certain mood to an action of the Orbit. Be mentally prepared for a visceral experience and watch a helicopter dance to the music of your moods. Pragyan 2017’s exhibition - Brain Controlled Helicopter by Puzzlebox Orbit!



Childhood memories are incomplete without the bicycles we used to ride everywhere. Whizzing past crowded lanes, speeding, hoping to be faster than light, we have always wanted to reach new heights with our bike riding skills.

As Pragyan knows you best, we decided to elevate your bike riding experience. Fitted with state-of-the-art gears and modules, it impresses us with its convenient, yet ingenious features. Your energy shall not go in vain anymore, because what the future holds is what we shall see in Pragyan 2017’s exhibition - the world’s first crowdfunded electric bike, Spero Cycle!


Imagine a drone that recognises you and can take off, follow you wherever you go and land, all on its own. With high level technology to track the coordinates of the given object, as well as flying at an average speed of about 25MPH, is this smart drone that will remain hot on one’s trail.

Now, take it a notch up and visualise an artificial mechanical bird mimicking all the physical actions of a real bird. Showing us that technology has permeated every aspect of life on earth and has become seamless enough to deceive us into believing virtuality as the new reality, this exhibition of Ornithopter will leave you gaping in awe.

Stop imagining and pull yourself down to reality, for Pragyan is proud to present its Exhibition #4 - Smart Drone and Ornithopter!



Complementing the theme, ‘Light’, the world’s darkest substance shall be put on exhibit. Being a virtual black hole on earth, VANTA - standing for Vertically Aligned Nano Tube Array - absorbs 99.965% of incident light, essentially making light lose itself amidst it.

Now darkness can be anyone’s ally and one should merely ensure to know the way out of it. Pull your socks up, for you shall get consumed in a tide of darkness, but Pragyan 2017 shall eventually help you by providing light. Hence, the unmissable exhibition of Pragyan 2017 - Vantablack!



High resolution pictures of grainy saturated photos taken with polaroid, taken with iPhones, posted on instagram, tells us of the divergent and the distant path that photography has traversed over the ages. For all those who go gaga over the specifications of a camera, or just about anyone to whom cameras have become an indispensible part of their lives, this exhibit is for you.
We live in an age where going vintage is all the rage, our fascination with all things antique never going out of style. Walk into the Arun Cameras stall in the Exhibitions this Pragyan, and walk down history lane with the line of antique cameras in sight for you.
