Turtle Shell Robots Jump Off the Screen and into Action! (Video)

I can't be exactly sure what Michael Overstreet and his gang of fellow makers are up to in Kansas City, but whatever it is, it sure looks like fun. They have turtle shell racers that appear to be remote controlled from the operators smartphones, that look just as if they jumped right off the screen out of a Mario Bros video game adventure.

Making fun with the MakerBot 3D Printer-

I asked Michael what's up, and he responded by saying, "... in a few weeks there will be lots of information and a website!" I do know, however, that a large percentage of the parts and pieces used in constructing the robots were printed on a MakerBot 3D printer.
