I’ve been asked a few times why I did my magazine on robotics, and the answer is that I’m a huge nerd. My actual knowledge of robotics is not very much, definitely nothing practical, but the idea of this technology and its potential applications is fascinating and amazing. To be even nerdier, the idea of making an issue dedicated to prostheses stemmed from a conversation about Bucky from Captain America and what a cross-section of his metal arm would look like.
My target audience for this magazine was essentially writers and art directors in their late thirties and early forties who were professionally nerdy — and good at it. The magazine itself gives a look into what’s going on in various areas of robotics; real life, entertainment, art. Its main purpose is to inspire.
