Happy July 4th from Team Duct Tape!

card-gamespool-funTDT enjoyed some much deserved downtime today, at our annual Independence Day Weekend potluck. Sean Denny, of the IEEE Florida West Coast Section,  joined us, as did two of our graduate members.  The rainy day forecast held off until after everyone got in some pool time, and then indoor card games provided entertainment for the rest of the afternoon.

One of our team members, Chris, checked in from Chicago, enroute to his summer internship at Anybots , a telepresence robotics company. We mentioned QB back in May, noting that TDT programmer Chris Willingham had been developing a similar robot – his Skypebot – that provided telepresence capability via Skype.   In the course of researching mobility methods, Chris ended up speaking with Trevor Blackwell , whom he was delighted to learn is the inventor of Anybot’s QB.   As a result of their conversations, Chris was offered an internship at Anybots in Mountain View, CA, which he happily and gratefully accepted.

So it ended up being a great day to celebrate all sorts of independence, as we watch our team members head out into exciting futures, doing the things they love!
