Los Angeles artist Steve Talkowski of Sketchbot Studios Inc. has created a collection of 3D models featuring cute robots in real world situations.
He also rendered a robot version of the well-meaning demon superhero Hellboy.
Steve made the collection of original character designs for artist Dacosta Bayley‘s daily March of Robots” sketch challenge, which has recently become an artbook. You can view more of Steve’s robots on Behance.

THIS FRIDAY.
THANK YOU, ROBOT is excited and honored to present a very special show: SCIENCE EXCLAMATION POINT.In this experiment, we are inviting two scientists to give short lectures in their fields of study. Following each, there will be an exploration of the presented topic… in the form of long form comedy improv. Featuring special guest team TESLA.Only $5. The Scientists:Ben LillieBen is a high-energy particle physicist who left the ivory tower for the wilds of New York’s theater district. He is the Co-founder and Director of The Story Collider, where people are invited to tell stories of their personal experience of science. He is also a Moth StorySLAM champion and a former writer for TED.com.Paula Croxson Paula is an Assistant Professor of Neuroscience and Psychiatry at Mount Sinai School of Medicine. She works on the brain networks and chemicals responsible for memory and other higher functions of the brain. She’s particularly interested in complex, autobiographical life memories. When not in the lab, she plays flute with alternative rock band Marlowe Grey.The idea came to us from Ben Lillie, Danielle Sedbrook, and Caitlin Shure.To help use in this journey of discovery is the absolutely amazing team TESLA (Shaun Diston, Ellena Chmielewski, James Dwyer, Dianimal Kolsky, Jesse Lee & John Timothy)Hypothesis: Your brain will be filled with knowledge and then blown with improv.(Join us afterwards at UCB East for a post-show symposium. And beers.)

The future that awaits us. 

Next Thank You, Robot Presents Summer Fridays is April 18th, 10:30pm. And it is a very very special one: SCIENCE EXCLAMATION POINT. We have invited two scientists to come and give talks on their field. And then TYR and TELSA will do improv sets using those talks as inspiration.

It is not to be missed.

Two scientists will talk about their science.
Two improv teams will do sets off of those talks.
It is just like Cosmos. Except for the improv part.

The scientists are Paula Croxson and Ben Lillie, two of the smartest, coolest people I know. (Paula also has a kick-ass British accent.) I may have to stay up past my bedtime for this.

!!! (exclamation point)
