San Francisco, April 2004



This is a teenager riding a motorized skateboard. Note the handheld throttle and brake, just like a bike, so all acceleration and speed are controlled by the rider's hand. the chassis is soft enough to do hockey stops and has some give for going over bumps, curbs, etc.
This memory robot is the graduate project of an MIT grad student (arms shown). After building with colored pieces, the blue hub piece incessantly repeats the motion the creator does with it.
