Today was the start of The Sun’s Feel Good Piñata event, as part of their Big Smile Giveaway. You can have a go from 11am GMT every day this week. Basically you get in line to hit a Piñata with a robot arm live!
Feel Good Piñata was a News International R&D project that I was a part of before I left at the end of last year, so they invited me to come and see it in action today. I was so excited that they managed to pull it off, even if the robot arm did keep crashing 😉
In the foreground is the video camera used for live streaming to the web. In the background is an ABB robotic arm and a piñata shaped like a raindrop.
