Give Your Robot a Soul and Help Children Become Better Students

POSTED 07/25/2011

ot souls are for sale in Ann Arbor, Michigan as Brian Huse learned during the town’s annual Art Fair this year. But the real story is how the sale of souls (and kidneys and tears and other novelties) at the Liberty Street Robot Supply and Repair Shop help support a free tutoring service run by non-profit 826michigan.

Brian HuseBrian Huse has been with Robotic Industries Association since 1994. In a "walkabout" of the industry that started in 1998, he worked for member companies Deneb (now DELMIA) and Norgren Automotive; a four-year stint in which he was immersed in the business of software and hardware manufacturing for the robotics industry. Armed with a greater appreciation for the needs of RIA’s members and their publics, he rejoined the Association in 2001 and has responsibility for membership, marketing and public relations. See his blogs on Robots in America and watch for tweets from his perch on Twitter (@HuseBrian) where the goal is to say nice things about RIA members and leave helpful nuggets about the state-of-the-industry.
