Real World Tests Are Always The Best (Video)
I have to admit that I was more than a little skeptical when I first ran across the Fritz Robotic Head Kickstarter project. The concept was good, and it was easy to understand, but I had to question how engaging it would actually turn out to be for kids and other people that come into contact with the robot puppet head.
It turns out that I shouldn't have been concerned. Fritz's creators trotted him out for the Robotics Exhibition at the Wings Over the Rockies Air and Space Museum last weekend, and he was a big hit.
I hope they'll repeat the experiment. For example, RoboGames 2013, coming up later this week in San Mateo, California would be an awesome location for Fritz to get more exposure, especially with all the families with kids that turn out.
