JouleS THE ROBOT via .
Joules exists because designing and making things is fun.
Joules came from a challenge to build an electric tandem bicycle powered by actually pushing the pedals like a person. Fun kinetic design was part of the intent, practicality was not.
Riding with Joules is a reminder that engineering and craftsmanship can be joyful pursuits. Engineering and art need not be separate.
I hope that Joules can remind kids that creating real things is great way to spend time, and perhaps a career.
