John Sosoka, CTO of Ugobe, was at Maker Faire Austin showing off Pleo, the company’s robotic dino pet, and answering questions about the bot, especially its hackability. The video interview is rather awash in the ambient noise of a very busy Maker Store, so the transcript on RobotsRule is your best bet. [Photo by Scott Beale]
