Built in a college dorm room off a $1000 Columbia Engineering grant, the T-Shirt Shooting Robot is a smartphone-operated, 100-pound robot that shoots t-shirts into crowds.
I am a Computer Science student at Columbia University, and a volunteer superuser at the Columbia University MakerSpace. After months of design iterations and code revisions, we look forward to entertaining and teaching Maker Faire attendees about robotics, technology, engineering, and the opportunities available to anyone interested in making things.

Why do you have nuts and bolts all over your desk?
I study Electrical Engineering at the Grove School of Engineering. Biomedical technology is an intense interest of mine; as a result, we tried to imbue animal-inspired motion in the T-Shirt Shooting Robot by building an omnidirectional drive platform. This means the robot is able to translate and rotate in all directions, just like a person can. Designing towards that capability, alongside many others, has been a massive engineering challenge, and we have dedicated many months to every detail. I look forward to meeting you at Maker Faire New York this October!
