Robot feels slighted by MAKE, Volume 19

Robot feels slighted by MAKE, Volume 19

A robot named QuietBot #1524 posted to its twitter channel about the latest issue of MAKE:

No mention of me and my work, but the newest issue of @Make magazine is out, and it’s all about lots of other #robots.

We’re sorry you feel left out, QuietBot #1524. We went to your site and looked at you and your army of fellow warehouse distro robots. Most impressive. We’ll keep your barcode in our database for our next bot issue. And look on the bright side, you aren’t in the current issue of MAKE, but you are on Make: Online!

From MAKE magazine:

In MAKE, Volume 19: Robots, Rovers, and Drones, learn how to make a model plane with an autopilot and a built-in robot brain. We’ll also show you how to make a comfortable chair and footstool out of a single sheet of plywood, a bicyclist’s vest that shows how fast you’re going, and projects that introduce you to servomotors. All this, and plenty more, in MAKE, Volume 19! If you’re a subscriber, your copy should be shipping in the next few days; newsstand date is August 18th.

    Many thanks for your kind words. Now I don’t feel left out at ALL. I think it’s every robot’s dream to have her story covered by MAKE or Make: Online.

    Please let me know if you’d ever like to visit! I’d love to give you the grand warehouse tour.
