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.
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
