Building Bristlebots

On Saturday morning, our family took a workshop on building bristlebots at Apha One Labs in Brooklyn. Bristle bots are simple robots which have brushes attached and can be used to make a painting. The paint was a little bit on the thick side-- the bots will probably work much better with liquid watercolors. They got a little bogged down in the thicker acrylics. But they worked, and Mikro built his first electrical circuit!

We had a great time, and Kev is probably going to become a lab member.
