Today, April 22, is Earth Day and our far out friends at NASA want you to snap a selfie for the special occasion, but not just any photo will do.

Covered this yesterday. Actually, the first part was from a month ago.
A hexapod robot that can walk on six legs and transform into a ball shape. It can also roll in all directions.

Story
Tagline
Robert (Rob) Burns
Introduction
Over the past 25 years I have enjoyed a successful career in Business Development. During this time I have assisted organizations with solving their business issues and reaching their objectives. These successes were accomplished with the robust and diverse services and solutions that I represented. My Sales and Business Development roles have spanned across Information Technology, Management Consulting and the Recruitment and Staffing sectors. During my Business Development career I have demonstrated a proven ability to maximize revenue and drive optimal profit margins, enhance market share, launch new products/services and develop win-win solutions for small, medium sized companies and key corporate clients. Successful business environments are integrating Social Business, Social Media and Social Networking into their successful Business Development strategies. With the recent advances in Social Business & Social Media, I have integrated the best practices I have learned through my experiences during my Business Development career with the unique and progressive opportunities provided by Social Business, Social Media and Social Networking, including LinkedIn. I understand the strategic importance and value of integrating a Business Development approach that includes proven and successful methodologies of Business Development along with Social Business, Social Media and Social Networking business development strategies, platforms and opportunities. Along with my business partners, we are helping those successful business owners and companies integrate Social Media into their Business Development strategies. Our experience, knowledge and proven track record of success in business development can be assets to your team and can contribute to your company’s success.
