Thanks Kitchener!

A heartfelt thanks to the people of Kitchener for helping me paint 105 tiles at the 2015 Maker Expo!

Even during the wind and rain, participants of all ages stopped by my Crowd Painting booth to paint a tile via the paint-by-numbers method, and made it a success!  And major thanks to KW’s KWARTZ Lab for making it happen!

The design of the robot was a collaborative effort between myself and my Marco.  Who can resist a good old-fashioned robot!  This robot’s name is KWARTZ-Bot in honour of KWARZ Lab, and he’s somewhat taunting everyone to MAKE stuff!  The 1’s and 0’s spell out ‘KWARZ’ in binary code.  There are 3 giant USB ports just above the legs, and a circuit board mid-section – just in case it’s not apparent from the picture.

What a great day for robot battles and so many exhibits!  If you’ve never been to Maker events before, it’s well worth going just to see all the robots and the cool stuff people can make as technology becomes more and more accessible.  It’s also fun and educational for kids!

Special thanks to Doug, Kerri, Brett, Madelaine, Deborah, Matt, Jennifer, Wendy, and of course, Marco, for all your extra help and support!  🙂
