Rudolph the Red-Nosed Egg-bot

December 14, 2012

Traditional holiday decorations are boring. Make them interesting with TECHNOLOGY! That’s right, we will be using robots* to decorate christmas tree ornaments, ping pong balls, and any other spherical shaped objects we can get our hands on. The star of the show will be the good ‘ol Egg-bot, a device which expertly draws your designs onto round things. We might even try etching ornaments. Heck, maybe we’ll even shove some LEDs up in those ornaments. Join us for mayhem as we mix tradition and technology and make something awesome.

Free and open to the public! The doors open at 7pm, egg-botting starts at 7:30.
We’re located at 1936 5th Avenue, in the garage around back on Watson.
Look for our flag above the door.
