Join us for a closing reception for SADbot, the current Eyebeam Window Gallery exhibition by Dustyn Roberts and Ben Leduc-Mills, on Thursday, July 22, 6-7:30PM.

The closing reception is followed by Summer School @ Night: Open Retail, moderated by Dustyn Roberts.

SADbot (The Seasonally Affected Drawing Robot) is a solar powered, interactive drawing machine.  It uses two 18.5'' x 13'' solar panels to power two stepper motors which allow the control of a pen in two dimensions.  SADbot takes input from people walking outside the gallery window by putting a set of sensors that can tell how much light they're getting (photocells) up against the inside of the window.  SADbot knows if someone is covering up one of the sensors, and can change its drawing behavior accordingly.
