It’s good on a weekend to step back from the everyday and find little inspirations around us. The museums education staff came across “Ollie”, a little robot that is a creative fun family project, developed by creative technologist Pritika Nilaratna that explores human product interaction. This one day workshop for individuals as well as parents and their kids will use Mrs. Nilaratna original Ollie Design to develop our own personal Autonomous robotic pet blimp. http://meandollie.com/ All Materials Provided.
