Former Make: Labs intern Matthew Dalton and his friend Jake Rogers do this cute geek webcomic called R&D. Today’s strip is on Maker Faire Bay Area, and Russell, the event’s perennial robo-giraffe. Other maker creations, other tech fads, other robots, have come and gone, but ‘ol Russel just keeps rolling along. And usually arrives with upgrades. We’re all getting older, slower, grayer. Russell gets smarter and now sports a new powder-coat.
