We all live in a Yellow Drum Machine

LetsMakeRobots will demonstrate the Yellow Drum Machine (YDM), as well as other robots by their members. The YDM is a funky little drumbot. It roams around and makes beats, and samples. They’ll also have some fun projects for you to try yourself!

Ah, nostalgic inventions from the Museum of Interesting Things

Rolling into World Maker Faire this weekend, The Museum of Interesting Things is a traveling interactive demonstration/exhibition of antiques and inventions inspiring innovation and creativity - learning from the past to create a better future. Their demonstrations are hands on and they bring items that show what inventions led to ipods and other items in our everyday lives. There are 8 departments that coincide with the curriculum in public schools as well as being fun and interesting for kids and adults! The departments are: Science, Math, Literature, Medical, Toys, Music, Household and Photography.

It’s a roboBrrd, it’s a mini dog-cow, and yes, it’s RobotGrrl!
