Maker Expo Recap!

We had an absolute blast at Maker Expo in Kitchener on Saturday!

With more bots and more fights then last year the crowds were constant and the battles took all day to get through!

Big thanks to our mayors for once again taking part in the massive 3 way Mayoral BotBrawl!

The Mayoral Bot Brawl!

Thanks to Maker Expo's installation program where they provided funds to special exhibitors. Being part of this program we were able to build a fleet of small balloon popping robots. These little balloon poppers were extremely popular with the kids.  We plan to make this a bigger part of the event next year now that its a proven concept. Details on that down the road but we plan to encourage kids to build little balloon poppers and bring them to the event! Join our mailing list for updates, when ever we publish a blog post you'll be notified (don't worry its not that often).
