Boston Fan Expo
The Boston Fan Expo attracted many attendees who dressed as their favorite robots, but they didn't expect to see real ones! This event gave fans a chance to meet visionaries that made science fiction a reality on screen including cast members from Star Trek, Back to the Future, 2001 a Space Odyssey and more. MassRobotics shared a few real robots, which were a big hit with the families and fellow robot fans.
