RoboBrrd in OWL Magazine

Check out September 2014′s issue of OWL Kids magazine- RoboBrrd is inside! Way cool!

The above photo is how RoboBrrd reads words. It uses a multimeter, and stares at the text with glowing red eyes. That is, if it can stay still. This is Coolios RoboBrrd, so it only remained calm for about 10 seconds before going crazy flapping its wings and twisting everywhere.

A little while ago, out of nowhere, an editor at OWL contacted us if we wanted RoboBrrd in the magazine. We used to read OWL when we were really young! How crazy is that?!?! Thanks, Kim!

There is also a post about RoboBrrd on their OWL blog.

Check out this Maker Challenge:

Pretty amazing to be in the same magazine as Commander Hadfield. Too bad he wasn’t at Maker Faire Ottawa!

Hopefully this will inspire some people out there to build a robot. If you run in to any questions when building a robot and need help, post on the Robot Party Rockstars Google+ Group, and we can all lend a hand!

Shoutout to everyone who has helped with RoboBrrd in the past! If you want to get started building your own RoboBrrd, check out its nest on the web: RoboBrrd.com!
