This work was funded by a Partnerships in Public Awareness Award from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council EPSRC. National dissemination of this performance was funded by the EPSRC in October 2005 and at the same time it became a featured activity within Walking with Robots, an Engineering Stage Award. It was performed at the Boston Museum of Science in July 2006.
