Boing Boing covers Studio 360 covering the Sparky Project

Lisa Katayama, writer, journalist and blogger wrote on Boing Boing:

"My segment on Sparky — a robot made by San Francisco artist Marque Cornblatt using a Mac Mini, Skype, and a hodge podge of gadget parts — aired this weekend on PRI's Studio360, the arts and culture radio show hosted by novelist Kurt Anderson. Instead of doing a straight up interview, Marque and I took Sparky to the SF MoMa unannounced to see if we'd be let into the galleries. You can listen to the segment here, but for full effect I recommend going to Studio360's web site and watching the audio slideshow (below the Diablo Cody one) — it includes pictures of Sparky in the MoMa, Marque's living room, and the other characters that make appearances on the show."

The big robot at the museum is a one of a kind. There is a video with instructions for making a robot with the same basic set-up but on a small VEX chassis. ( LINKThis approach could scale up to any size with the right motors and power.
