Dick and I attended the San Diego Makers Faire this last weekend and had a great time. We were there representing the Robotics Society of Southern California whose members have been extremely helpful to me, sharing their knowledge of robotics and helping me build Digital Dick, the robot. Sunday I was able to add a joke routine to Dick’s software and that was a big hit with attendees to the faire. Attached are a couple of photos I took. The first is a picture of Dick in front of our Maker Faire booth.

Dick has complained about the poor quality of my photo and says he could do better. He asked for a selfie stick for Christmas.

One of the highlights of the Maker Faire, besides selling books, was that Dick got to meet one of his greatest heroes, R2D2. R2 generously posed with Dick in front of our booth on Sunday.

Can you count how many images of the book cover there are in this photo?

Digital Dick Meets His Hero — 2 Comments

  1. R-U kidding? Wow, Dick is really coming up in the world. I would love to hear his jokes. Did he come up with them on his own or did his maker?

    • Suad, Thanks for commenting. Another member of the Robotics Society of Southern California provided me with the program code and a file of jokes (5 or 6). A couple of them are pretty cute. One of these days I’ll bring Dick to a Wednesday night meeting.
