We kick off this series with a Google + Hangout on Air live from Olin College with Brian David Johnson, and more Maker Masters this Sunday, November 3rd, 2013 (from noon – 3pm ET).   We’ll be discussing his vision of the 21st Century Robot and talking to the makers behind Jimmy the Robot, and more…     We are also encouraging teams to get involved and create their own open source robots – and have set aside kits for teams that would like to get involved.
