This past weekend the Vex World Championships were held at the Dallas Convention Center and I brought my R2D2 there to have fun and inspire some other robot builders from around the world. While I was there I got to meet Grant Imahara who worked on R2D2 in Episode 2 and 3 he also hosts a show on the Discovery Channel called Mythbusters. Here is a picture of me, R2, Grant and the boy scouts. I didn’t get to talk very long but talked to him about my Battlebot called Snuggabot, he had a Battlebot called Deadblow. I also briefly showed him my iPhone controlled sounds and got him to sign my R2 dome.
