Those who attend the Maker Faire next month in San Mateo, CA or Queens, New York in September will be treated to a Robot Petting Zoo. The brains behind the attraction are those from Makerbot Industries who created the Replicator 3D printer. They even utilized one to help build parts for the zoo with the results being a collection of bots that perform different actions.

For example, push Button Bot in one of several areas and he may amuse both kids and adults. Tickets for the events can be purchased online for $40.00 per adult, $20.00 for students.
