May 4, 2011 Takes on Dean Kamen at FIRST


Anyone who has ever seen a Black Eyed Peas performance knows that is into robotics and he took on Dean Kamen, creator of the Segway, last week during the F.I.R.S.T. 2011 competition. The organization (which stands for "For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology") was founded by Kamen in 1989.

Acting as honorary coaches, Kamen backed team 2859 from McLean, VA, and was behind team 3509 from Folsom, Calif. (nicknamed "The Dirty Bots" in his honor.) The singer's team beat the inventor's with a score of 73 - 9.
