LA Gadget Expo 2015!

On the weekend of December 5th-6th, our team both attended and exhibited at the Los Angeles Gadget Expo! The LA Gadget Expo is a chance for business and organizations to present their innovations in the areas of fitness, mobile, family, transportation, wearable, health, design, outdoors, home, multi-tool, and everyday carry. We demonstrated our 2013 robot. It was a great opportunity for our team to network and explore with local and national inventors and entrepreneurs!
