We’ve got robots like nobody’s business! We’ve got FIRST robots, and USF Robotics Interest Group robots, and Underwater ROV robots and now we’ve got Robot Art, thanks to CyberCraft Robots!
CyberCraft Robots are out of this world creations developed in “an Orbiting Laboratory (that) enjoys a semisynchronous orbit, which allows us to examine your entire planet daily. We take advantage of our passage above your home orb, to scrutinize every estate sale (poor buggers), trash heap, bar mitzvah, and bingo parlor for Secret Robot Parts.”
These Secret Robot Parts, CyberCraft tells us, “are actually bits of unassembled Robot! Our mission at CyberCraft Robots is to covertly collect these seemingly mundane items, and reassemble them into the marvelous Robots they were intended to be.”
And they’re coming to Tampa Bay Mini Maker Faire! Now take a second look at the scrap heap in your garage and see what’s really in there…

Established to “ promote the art of fine scale modeling, and to share ideas, methods and techniques for the advancement of the hobby,” the center features models by notable model builders and artisans from around the world, including Brian Nolan,Richard Schmitt,Frank Palmer, and Steve Pettit, and currently houses:
“We have created something where people can come see some of the finest modeling in the world,” Dave Revelia, a retired Largo firefighter and one of six model train enthusiasts who have created the center, told the Tampa Bay Times.
