Smarty Robot

“The best way to avoid being replaced by a robot is to be the person who makes the robot.”  Ross Atkin,maker of Crafty Robot.

Ross was on the BBC2 Big Life Fix – he’s an engineer who specialises in making technology to help less able people. Some of his projects are on his website here.

Remember Crafty Robot? Here’s a nice gold one!
Ross has just launched a crowdfunder for a more sophisticated version – Smarty Robot. Watch the video below and find out more here. What do you think? My favourites – the Lego robot, the potato robot and the xylophone! Could you be the person who makes the robots?…

    • Well hello my Robos! I hope you’re being good, unbiased judges and working hard for Miss G. What’s the best thing you’ve seen all week? Has anyone/ class particularly impressed you? I’m not missing much (it”s sunny!) but I’m missing you 5 & Miss G! Xx
