WobbleWorks: flapping ears and robotic dinosaur dreams

Artisan’s Asylum’s 30,000-odd square feet were largely uninhabited when we arrived early Wednesday afternoon. No shocker there, really — the space’s president and co-founder Gui Cavalcanti warned us in advance that it wouldn’t begin filling up until later that evening, seeing as how a big portion of renters hold down nine-to-fives. They occupy desk jobs during daytime hours in order to support their after-work passions, stopping by the space in the evening hours to produce works that might some day rise above the category of hobby.

The duo behind WobbleWorks are strange cases, however, not simply due to the moving rabbit and dog ears they donned during our interview — their paying gigs hardly qualify them for the straight-laced, button-down world we’ve come to associate with the term “day job.” In 2011, Max Bogue and Peter Dilworth founded the small toy company aiming to help fund their true passion: robotic dinosaurs.
