SnotBot Attracts Media Attention

Our Robotics Program with Olin College of Engineering, developing new benign research techniques to study whales, has always  been popular at events we attend and schools we visit, but since SnotBot was covered in the Boston Globe and was a runner-up for a Drone Social Innovation Award the floodgates have opened. 
If you haven’t seen it, here is the video that started it all, created by Eliza Muirhead and featuring our Robotics Program in the Gulf of Mexico during trials:

Since then SnotBot has been featured in Popular Science, Geek, Gizmodo, io9, Fastcoexist, Science Alert, ReekOScience and the press inquiries keep coming. One of our favorite headlines? “No Huge Kleenex Needed – SnotBot Gathers Whale Snot for Scientists to Study.”
