IAI's Multi-Arm Unmanned Ground Vehicle Shaves Head for Charity
Every year volunteers shave their heads for St. Baldrick's Foundation to raise money to help in the search for cures for childhood cancer. And every year IAI employees participate in the event. This year, however, there was a twist for one of our employees; Tim was not shaved by a human... he was shaved by a robot. Tim bravely sat while IAI's Multi-Arm UGV shaved his head. Watch the video here: https://youtu.be/oMREA_XLQ1A.
The event was quickly featured in Gizmodo, IEEE Spectrum, MSNBC, and other sources.
