Bonus material from ROBOT Night!


Thanks to everybody who was part of last week's ROBOT Night!

We had a helluva turnout, enthusiastic geeks from all walks of life -- plus special appearances by Vlad Tsepis (host of TV's
Ghoul a Go Go), Professor Tom Henning, a game of Rock 'Em Sock 'Em Robots and a Roomba.

Here’s some bonus material that didn’t appear during the show.
