“We’re inviting engineers to submit their creative ideas about my Spider-Bot,” said Grant Imahara. “They just go online and share an idea and invite their friends to do the same. My passion is in robotics, and I’ve been working in robotics for over 20 years. I’ve got some awesome ideas and I’m sure others do, too. So who’s up for a challenge? What robots have others built?”

At the end of the Twitter Party, Grant will announce a new Robotics Empowering Innovation Challenge™. Grant will challenge the engineering community to submit an idea on what real-world problem they would solve with his giant Spider-Bot and why they want to solve it.

The engineering community is already voting for their favorite design on the Empowering Innovation Challenge site. The Photo Challenge is the first of a series of challenges on a variety of engineering topics hosted by Mouser Electronics.
