What to expect:
A unique tech experience

Interactive comedy stage show
A unique tech experience where the audience connect their phones to Foxdog's own WiFi to play games, music and more. Their latest creation robot chef has audiences draw their own characters and control them onstage through augmented reality. Their character's are in control of Foxdog's 3D-printed custom tech - igniting a fully automated stove, driving a sky tractor and firing a head-mounted sausage cannon to cook and serve a meal of sausage and beans (it's the simplest way).
Here’s a video of the first outing of the robot chef, headlining Festival of the Spoken Nerd. Watch here.
