Pittsburgh is famous for its bridges and its robots. We're going to be visiting Pittsburgh right at the end of the month, from April 28th until May 2nd to check on both of those great attributes, including "ARCH", a sculpture created by Glenn Kaino that mashes together robots and bridges.

The massive sculpture was commissioned as a part of the city's 250th anniversary in 2008, and is located in a street corner lot near Seventh St. and Fort Duquesne Blvd.

By the way, we would certainly like to meet up with any readers in the Pittsburgh area to share a coffee (or beer) and exchange robot stories. If you're up for it, shoot us a line and we'll arrange the time & place.
