World Science Festival touched down in Brooklyn for a full day of functioning robots and gadgets like smart-watches, 3D printers, video games and other interactive tech.
After dark, the festival continued at Brooklyn Bridge Park where astronomers set up telescopes for stargazing and gave talks about the nighttime sky.

Hubo walks, shakes hands, etc. One day it may be smart enough to be a personal assistant or help save lives.
the MakerBot tent, where the Replicator2 3D printer was churning out cool little plastic objects.
Joshua Harker, a 3D-printing artist, was also showing his sculptures. Skylar Tibbits exhibited 4D printing, where objects self-assemble over time.
Fixers’ Collective NYC taught people how to fix their broken gadgets.
The Brooklyn branch of the World Science Festival is a great day of science and technology. Can't wait for next year.
