The rules, for the newbies.

And the picture:

As always, the deadline is nominally Sunday at midnight Eastern.


The problem with getting an engineer’s signature is NOT locating a sharpie. It’s locating a part of the robot that they’re ABLE to sign!

With that outfit, are you sure got Dean’s signature and not Jeans signature?

Boys in all denim :heart_eyes::heart_eyes:

Dean thinking: I have spotted three engineering faux pas so far. Should I tell them, or let them figure it out?

Dean: OK, I’ll sign it. Here, hold my beer. Sorry, tea.

They’re getting the full Dean Kamen Experience TM: Segway, Signature, Denim, and two new ideas to change the world.

Two events later

Inspector: “Here is your sticker, place it some where visible”

Grade Nine Student: “I guess this is as good a place as any there is just what looks like some smudged sharpie marks here”


Students: We’re getting his signature!

Dean, muttering: Needs another hole here, 2 inches off this…

Students: Why’s he signing every part of the robot?

Thanks for boosting our eBay auction!

Sealed, Delivered, Unsealed, Signed. Close enough.

Dean looking at the robot in deep thought.

‘If I steal that gear setup and added an encoder, I could probable cut two pounds and a save hundreds in the manufacturing costs of these Segway’s.’

Responds to the team, “Always glad to provide an autograph.”

Dean: “Why does this robot have handlebars?”

Everyone thinks the student in the background is looking at Dean and thinking about how cool it is to have him sign the robot. He is but he’s also looking at Dean’s Sharpie and thinking how cool it would be if he got to keep that Sharpie.

“Wait, where’s the CAD drawing I’m supposed to sign? One of the engineers in this place told me I was supposed to sign a CAD drawing over here, but I don’t see one.”
“Uh, the robot’s a CAD drawing. It’s obvious, there aren’t any electronics or programming on it yet”
“Oh ok.”

That’s a good sign.

Let’s get this going, shall we?
