While in town for a concert at TD Garden, Black Eyed Peas mastermind William James Adams, Jr. (aka Will.i.am) paid a visit to the Stata Center for a tour of the labs. Aside from rapping, songwriting, and producing, Adams is also an amateur robotics enthusiast.
During his tour of CSAIL, the artist had a look at projects from Daniela Rus' Distributed Robotics Lab, Russ Tedrake's Robot Locomotion Group, and Nicholas Roy's Robust Robotics Group. If any ornithopters, autonomous helicopters, or underwater robots show up in the Black Eyed Peas' next video, you'll know where the inspiration came from.
