The challenge was for a humanoid robot to drive a car, open a door, shut off a valve, cut a hole in sheetrock, and a few other tasks, like climbing stairs or go over debris. There were 4 courses for robots to compete at the same time and they had 1 hour to complete all the tasks.

@Large: Weiwei on Alcatraz

This Winter (2014-2015), Ai Weiwei has an exhibit on Alcatraz. The exhibit is opening some part of the island and the buildings that are usually closed to the public. They used the former prison’s laundry area to display a 140ft long dragon kite that shows incredible details as well as citations about freedom of speech.
