WALL•E & EVE at OC Spiritual Center

Our favorite sweethearts were invited to be part of a Valentine themed sermon at OC Spiritual Center in Irvine. Dr Jim chatted with WALL•E, interviewed Mike, then Eve joined and the two were available for photos afterwards. 

Tuesday, January 24, 2023


UCLA’s chapter of ASME invited Mike to give a presentation on building WALL-E. This was of particular interest to their X1 Robotics team, which is working to build their own WALL-E. Dozens of students attended the presentation in the campus’s newest lecture hall, the Mong Learning Center. Many students stayed after the presentation for one-on-one questions. Mike then did a partial tear-down of WALL-E to show the inner workings.

We were honored to be invited by Professor Dennis Hong to tour the Robotics and Mechanisms (RoMeLa) lab. We were blown away by various high tech robotic innovations created over the years by UCLA students. Including their newest full-sized humanoid robot ARTEMIS.

For details on their robots, check out Professor Hong’s latest TED Talk:

Thanks UCLA for inviting us out!

CHOC visit

It's been a while due to pandemic, so it was good to be back visiting pediatric patients at Children's Hospital Orange County (CHOC). We joined Victor Franco with his R2-D2. Spreading joy to patients as well as staff always brings a smile to our faces.
