CIMG6872 Brain and Compassionator — robots made by an Austin robotics organization The Robot Group, and displayed at the ArmadilloCon 2007 in the dealer room.
ArmadilloCon is a speculative fiction convention that takes place every year in Austin, Texas.
In the video below, The Compassionator (held by its creator on the right), shoots at the little robot on the floor. If I understood correctly, it was named the Compassionator because it doesn’t shoot to kill: rather, it sends beams of compassion. Or something like that.
All these robots were made by the members of Robot Group, an Austin, TX robotic organization, and displayed at the Robot Group table at the ArmadilloCon 2007.
