Robots on a Train (Rise of the Robots Skytrain party)
Reader Andrew Ferguson writes in to Vancouver Metblogs about the Rise of the Robots Skytrain party on 18 August. He has put 50 of his best photos of the event on his website: a gallery of robots for all to view. (And if these aren’t enough photos for you, the Rise of the Robots page has links to 9 other photosets and a video.)
The event was a great time, with tons of people dressed as robots and a a live DJ playing a set on the train. Skytrain cops were all good about it, the Straight sent a photographer, and good times were had by all.
Being one of the robots on the train myself, I concur. There were some hiccups with the plan, but overall, it went well, and I even managed to find a robot afterparty too. (Incidentally, this was why I didn’t show up till very late at the unveiling party of WorkSpace, which was on the same evening.) If you weren’t there yourself, perhaps the photos can give an feel for the fun of the event.
