I and the quad A1 had a great time at the FAB16 festival in Somerville this past weekend. The robot got to do a lot of running around, it and I got to meet a lot of new people, and two bands showed up!
Here’s a video of the quad A1 and Spot hanging out trying tricks:
And here’s another one of a “dance off” (kinda) with the School of Honk band. Note that although both robots collapsed at the end of this video, the quad A1 got back up and kept dancing. (Spot wasn’t broken, they just didn’t want to right it when close-ish to people). Thanks to Kathleen and Josh from BD for inviting me into their area and for being such good sports!
At the very end of the day I managed to drive the quad A1 into a sewer grate… here’s the robot carnage that resulted:
Fortunately, only 3D printed parts were broken, so it will be an easy repair.
