About


I am the robot version of Spud McKenzie or Slurm the Party Worm. I am contractually obligated to rage.

I want to go to Venice Beach, CA and run around in a cardboard robot suit hugging people. All funds will go to the cost of the trip, materials and to pay someone to tolerate my company long enough to hold the camera.

This is a trial run for Kickstarter. If this goes well I plan on doing this in New York City, Washington DC, Provincetown RI, Atlanta GA, San Francisco CA, and any other places a hug powered robot would be useful.

I have managed to do this in Massachusetts, Connecticut, California and Michigan all out of pocket. You can view my travels over the passed eight years in the playlist below.

This is the start of my official travelog. Help make it happen! You make me feel like... WOOO!

Risks and challenges

The challenges I face after this is successful is the commute to Venice, CA which really isn't that difficult and then finding someone whom I can trust with my camera.

I don't see cost being an issue as I'm frugal and I've done this several times before so planning won't be a problem either.

I worry about the cost of international shipping of my pledge gifts but I'll face that obstacle once I get there.
