    Hello Cali,
    great blogpost. Thank you and your team for making this GeekBeatTV video.

    My sympathies for hurting your fingers while flipping on or off a lightswitch. That paint sounds to good to be true in my opinion. Innovation at it’s best i think.

    Are you a Star Wars fan? I’m more a Star Trek fan myself. Making war sounds pretty useless to me, exploring the Galaxy on the other hand sounds more interesting to me.

    Time will tell whether Google Offers will be as succesful as Groupon.

    Love the Palro conversational robot. She’s adorable in my opinion. That she is open source is even better in my opinion. Great to see that robot innovation is still in progress.

    Take care and greetings from the Netherlands,
