Be a part of the change -- help to bring Quirkbot to the world!

Our friends from the TEDxStockholm team are launching Quirkbot -- a toy that allows you to create and program your own robots and make your own toys. Read how TEDx organizers are transforming education and help to bring Quirkbot to the world! It's early spring in Stockholm. The date is April 11th, 2013. Lead Instigator of TEDxStockholm and former speaker of TEDxVilnius and TEDxCopenhagen, Carl Bärstad, is carrying a black box bought in IKEA, a Makey makey, and some LED strips on his way to attend the event Art Hack Day and do an interactive art project (or at least try). Already working on the project HackerspaceInABox in an attempt to bring more hands-on experimentation with technology to schools, Carl still just considers himself a "wannabe maker" and Art Hack Day terrifies him. An event for someone who neither identifies himself as a hacker nor an artist (merely some kind of hustler).
