ER1s in Allentown

'what are you looking at... nerd'

The NSF is funding a curriculum for middle school students in Allentown, Pennsylvania based on the use of remotely controlled mobile robots exploring a simulated Martian landscape.

You can see a video of coverage by a local news station at the Martian Landscape Project's news page.

I love the sight of a swarm of ER1s stumbling around a school hallway, janitors and students weaving around them, while a bunch of proto-nerds are driving them from a remote classroom. It's kind of neat that I helped (a little bit, anyway) to make that happen.

Sweet. So when does my investment in your company pay off anyway?

I was going to post some snarky comment in this thread, but I see my co-bootee beat me to it. Congratulations, bastard.
