Maker Faire Megabit destroying art for Art Tuesday! via youtube
This is a video of the Most Wanted Fine Art Pittsburgh art car being smashed at Maker Faire by Megabots. Megabots challenged Japan’s Suidobashi Heavy Industries, creator of the Kuratas giant robot, to a duel against its Megabot Mark 2, which is a 15ft robot. Megabot made its public debut at the 10th Anniversary of Maker Faire, which took place in the Bay Area in May 2015. The Pittsburgh based art gallery, Most Wanted Fine Art traveled cross-country with their Pittsburgh Art Car and 7 Pittsburgh artists to be part of the festivities. While there Megabots created history by destroying the Pittsburgh Art Car with canon sized paint balls repeatedly over the weekend. This was the 4th art car tour for Most Wanted Fine Art which is owned by Jason and Nina Sauer.
