Kyun_kun started making robots when she was 10 years old. Her first robot was created from a kit and moved towards her as she clapped. By the time she was 18 she was designing her own robots.
At SxSw she was demonstrating her latest design Metcalf ver3 (a wearable robot designed as a fashion item) Although these robots are specifically designed as fashion statements, one of her goals is to also create wearables that merge healthcare with fashion.
At first glance you might think that Kyun_kun was the model for a Japanese high tech company, but after a few minutes of conversation (through her translator) you quickly learned that she is the brains behind this beautiful and SMART fashion statement.
She described her process for the design she was modeling today which included an Arduino and motor shield that controlled 4 stepping motors embedded in her costume that had two extra arms extending from her shoulders.
What an inspiration for your young women interested in making things beautiful and smart.
