Daniel Bacsur was born on July 21, 2005, in Budapest. Currently, he is a student in the 11th grade at Közgazdasági Politechnikum.
He built his first circuit at the age of 6, and a year later, he received mentoring from Professor Zoltán Jarosievitz and built an electric model of his room as a homework assignment.
In the following years, he worked on numerous projects, and in 2015, he became a child actor in the Hungarian State Opera’s production of “Billy Elliot”. Later, he was accepted into the Madách Theatre’s production of “School of Rock,” where he was a member for 2 seasons, as well as the Proton Theatre’s production of “In the Footsteps of Vackor,” which ran for two seasons at the Madách Theatre.
In December 2020, he won his first robotics competition. In this competition, he had to program an Arduino-based car to autonomously navigate various tasks using different sensors.
A year later, the RoboCup Robotics World Championship was held, attracting teams from all around the world. Daniel and his teammate represented Hungary in the OnStage category. The goal of the OnStage category was to present a complex 2-minute stage performance using robots designed and built by them. They prepared a robot band, featuring an automated piano-playing robot, a drumming robot accompanied by a separate piano, and an electric guitar. In the Hungarian qualifying round held in the spring of 2021, they achieved first place, earning them a spot in the world championship. The international competition took place online, where they had to solve complex, extra tasks for which they received points. Eventually, based on the unanimous decision of the jury, they won the “Best Hardware” world championship title in the OnStage category.
In 2022, he was involved in his school student company and smaller side projects. Towards the end of the year, he and his teammate submitted their application to the National Informatics and Innovation Olympiad. They prepared a credit card-sized computer for the competition, aiming to prevent a significant portion of data thefts and to make the work of cybersecurity engineers easier. As a result of six months of development, they achieved 2nd place in the OTIO competition.
As a result of their placement in the Olympiad, he received an invitation to the Kutdiak Camp, which he gladly accepted.
