New York Trip [Oct. 4th, 2006|11:12 am]
We went to New York City for WIRED Magizine's NextFest. David showed his newest robot "The Androgynoid".

What Security saw at the airport when they went nosing through the bag.

Introducing: The Androgynoid. The University of West England commissioned David to build a robot based on a study where they averaged the faces of 1,000 people to create the perfect androgynous face.

From left to right: Dr. Jun Ho Oh (from KAIST in Korea, he collaborated with David to build the Albert Hubo robot), David Hanson, the Mad Genius, JULES the Androgynoid wearing a dress getting ready for the party.

Jules in ambiguous clothing for NextFest, going through system tests and waving to the crowd.

Paro the Seal. Zeno really related to this guy. His Binky is his power charger.

Zeno after a rough day at the trailor park.

Zeno with this good friend Tomotaka Takahashi, one of our favorite robot designers.

Mr. Takahashi helps Zeno to walk around.

From the top of the Empire State Building. One of the highlights of my trip.

David with Wolfman Jack beard. He got asked out a lot this year at NextFest.

The thing in the lobby of the Empire State Building. It was very cool.

More pictures later after I upload them from the digital camera.
