One of the cooler parts was the demonstration of one of the Brooklyn Collaborative Roboshark's robots in all its glory: the frisbee-throwing robot. Three years ago students designed it for a challenge at the Javits Center and we still have it to show off. It's quite amazing (check out the video below).
We spent about an hour there talking to students, to Eddie, and some other folks who had come for the event. I'm so glad our school has these kinds of community connections and I wish the same for other schools in NYC.
