Egg-cellent Art

ArtBots 2008 was held on September 19-21 in the Science Gallery at the Trinity College in Dublin, Ireland. The show featured 15 works of art by 16 artists from 9 countries. Solarbotics Ltd was proud to provide several demo robots to the Science Gallery to use during ArtBots for their “hands-on” robot display.

One of the artists at the show was Christopher Kaczmarek with his piece “Untitled”. Other then its raw aesthetics, which is quite striking, it also uses the Solarbotics SCC3766 Solar Cell and GM10 Gear Motor (which really...how could that NOT increase its awsomishisness). Check out the video and crank up the volume to listen to the tappity-tapping of a solar powered egg shell anthem.
