We decided not to make a booth for Sweetie Bot Project alone, but for anyone who is busy creating his own electronics or tech project. Our booth named “Electrobrony” was aimed to unite all who loves technology and is engaged in hobby electronics. Anypony could show his own project at our table.

It was the first experience in creating the booth for us. Despite this, there were many people who agreed to help us to organize the techno table at RuBronyCon.

There were a lot of projects at our booth: Quadcopters, 3d printer, acrylights, floppy music device, homemade electric bike, electric guitar, tesla coil and many others.

Also it was the first time when we showed Sweetie in public.
Her shiny eyes and unique cute look definitely attracted everyone’s attention.
At that time, she could not make complex movements yet, but everyone can control her eyes and head with a gamepad.

We made a project presentation at the conference hall. Check it out:
