First of all, what is We-Robot?
"We-Robot" is a diesel powered, open source, CAD/CAM/CNC art making machine. It will use plasma to cut crowd sourced designs into giant hollow steel spheres and look awesome doing it. The resulting orbs are lit from within to make a beautiful glowing sculpture.
Another cool part? Anyone can submit a design for one of the sculptures!
