Giraffe 485
Our pal Mike over at PopSci & The Robotic Giraffe (Lindsay and the Giraffe also made an appearance at Maker Faire) – “It walks, it blinks, it seats six, and it blasts Kraftwerk: Meet one man’s 17-foot-tall pet project. It started with a seven-inch walking toy giraffe and a desire to see Burning Man from a higher vantage point. A year later, Lindsay Lawlor rode into the desert art festival atop Rave Raffe, a 1,700-pound robotic giraffe sporting 40 strobes, 400 LEDs and bone-shaking speakers.”Link.
