Wired magazine wants you to be the first to build your own robotic friend.
So they’re offering a $200,000 challenge.
They want you to build a robot with a personality that can be controlled remotely, as well as with a sense of humor.
You can get your chance to try out this one on Friday, March 19 at 8 p.m.
EST on the website for The Robot Society, an organization that wants to bring robotics to the masses.
This isn’t your normal robot.
You’ll need a human arm, a pair of hands, a brain and some other parts.
To make your robot, you’ll need to pick one of several designs, and then assemble it.
You might even have to pay a visit to your local hardware store.
But the real fun starts when you build a friend.
We’ll be there with the latest from the world of robotics, and we’ll tell you how it’s done.
