...the post I promised a million years ago...
The event got off to a wet start when we received Lucy's (Janice's dog) BLESSING:
Simple and fun, were these Happy Feet:
You've gotta check out this little girl spazzing out to these shoes:
This kid is looking at ScratchRobot thinking, "forget becoming a fireman, I'm gonna be a DJ!"
Kal's robot was wearable and fashionable in the "don't fuck with me" kind of way.
This robot seemed friendly but apparently scared some folks...even this guy and his daughter...wait, is he THAT guy? Does Elizabeth Smart know that guy?? J/K! J/K!
This robot was positioned to live side by side with a live cricket to see whether they affected each others behavior...results pending:
Eyebeam is proud to be one of the last fine establishments in this sinful city where children can partake in a Tickle Salon by laying topless on a bed, getting tickled and it's all kosher!
Really it is! Although, check out his ecstatic smile! The kid's never going to be the same again:
These were possibly the coolest robots...entitled micro.adam & micro.eva:
Boy does that Eva spin!
Next time you're asked to choose which is better: a kid's butt crack exposed or a grown man's butt crack exposed? Clearly this is immensely more dealable:
This kid's got game!...check him out, pimpin' on a cutie with his cookie monster hat and pink roller skates...
This robot was connected to rat brains whose brainwaves informed the drawing pattern:
Wow...first of all, jean cut-offs on guys are hot as we all know...but to have it stepped up a notch with this fancy cut-out...wow...
Here we have me in front of Chico MacMurtrie's amorphic robot! When Willa saw this she exclaimed, "THE WIRING LOOKS FAMILIAR." I kid you not. She then explained that the wiring reminded her of R2D2's. I know, tres adorable.
Here was the ultimate moment: Feral Robotic Dog vs. Sony AIBO Stand-Off.
The former robot is a robotic dog purchasable at toy stores which was hacked into an activist robot by attaching a depleted uranium sensor to its nose so that it can be released around nuclear power plants to expose the gnarliness of it all.
This AIBO flirts by nehhhing like a horse. Check out how longingly the feral dogs are looking at him:
AIBO got what he wanted! A little love sniff:
This was a cool Drawing Robot until a kid swung on the rods and of course his mom said, "well you know, kids will touch things..." Ok. Last time I checked, TOUCH greatly differs from SWING. OH AND MOM! hope you don't mind that we spanked the shit out of your kid! J/K!
The robot was restored several hours later.
And this is the robot people couldn't get enough of...Fotron 2000...you insert a $ and the the robot uses LEDs to paint a picture of you...
Here's what it looks like on the screen for you to okay before it transfers it onto a polaroid-there's me and Mr. Perry Lowe making out!
And that was the grande finale!
