Hexy went with me to the Big Bang Fair last week to show off his skills. Whilst he didn't get the a stage to himself on my company's stand, he was given the noble honour of giving the hard-working staff on our sister-stand (Rampaging Chariots) a chance to have a lunch break in piece.
If I'm honest, I'm quite pleased of this. It turns out that even demonstrating for an hour is quite the load on poor Hexy. I think at the last count I've knackered three servos, and one permanent marker.
The youngsters there were excellent, loads of interest in seeing a real robot and asking about what it could do/ how it worked. To be honest, there was almost as much enthusiasm from some of my colleagues! Signing postcards almost constantly, dozens of kids have left with a unique (badly written) memento of their day - a few even wanted their photo taken with Hexy!
