Even more exciting, for the first time ever, this San Francisco Bay Area team is releasing video of their project. From MegaBots headquarters, Matt Oehrlein and Gui Cavalcanti joined RightThisMinute via Skype to discuss how we can all follow their entire journey by watching a new YouTube video series.
