Just Another Day at Make HQ: Double the ED-209


People may wonder what it is like to work at Make Headquarters. Well, as awesome as you’re imagining, it is actually even more awesome. Let’s take today for example. Today is not only Halloween, the ultimate maker holiday, but also the first time both ED-209 robots have been in the same place, at the same time. Somehow the world did not stop!

When was the last time you arrived at work to find something as amazing as this had randomly arrived?
