Pleo dinosaur 

The robotic dinosaur Pleo came on the market in 2007 and a small group of enthusiasts keep it alive and  develop for it.  Sarah will demo some of the home brew tools created by others to program it.

The list includes: MySkit, YAPT, DINO-MITE

She will bring 3 pleos, one without skin so you can see the internals.  She'll share her current work with designing a kids summer camp robotics course using the Pleo.

Depending on interest she can also discuss other hacks people have done, how the pleo is being used in education and research and robotics in general in the bay area.

Nothing needed unless you want to bring a laptop to try MySkit(windows) for yourself.

You can load the software at: http://www.dogsbodynet.com/myskit/index.html
