I made this hat after hearing that Marek Michalowski and his unbelievably cute robot Keepon were going to stop by at Makerbot's Botcave. Sadly I did not have enough time to optimize it for printing and it was never printed. I am posting this hat as a work in progress in the hopes that later this weekend I will have the time to flatten out all of the overhangs or someone might make a printable derivative and repost it to Thingiverse.


Borrow a printer from a friend that has support structures enabled/tuned and print away! (The object is already manifold and ready to print if support structures are enabled.)

Place hat ontop of the newly announced "My Keepon" robot and watch him/her/it/robot dance!

PS: "My Keepon" is a $40 "toy" version of Marek and Hideki Kozima's Keepon robot. You can learn more about it here: http://beatbots.net/2011/01/31/my-keepon-from-wow-stuff/ and here: http://blog.makerbot.com/2011/02/18/a-new-day-for-robot-hospital/
