The kindness of strangers

Kacie Kinzer built robots, called Tweenbots, with a simple purpose: To get from point A to point B. Of course Tweenbots have a flaw. They can’t turn corners or navigate rough terrain, so they carry flags asking strangers for help and stating their destination.

And strangers actually helped!

In all, 29 people helped the Tweenbot on its 42 minute journey from the northeast corner to the southwest corner of Washington Square Park.
