Is it the latest robot project from Club Jameco? Is it a prototype gone wrong? Or is it a creature that lives under your sofa cushion?

Guess first... then find the answer here

Recently, a student from the University of Michigan wrote asking if he and a few colleagues could take a tour of Jameco. He was on a trip to San Francisco to attend a conference and wanted to see Jameco and “meet Greg Harris” during his precious spare time.
While I was flattered, I was also a little apprehensive. The Bay Area has so much to offer that I wasn't sure how a visit to Jameco could possibly be the priority with such a short visit. Nevertheless we rolled out the red carpet (made entirely of flashing LEDs of course) and welcomed Aaron and his colleagues.
Sadly, meeting me in person was a little disappointing because I revealed a secret I’ve never shared with Jameco readers. If you ever have occasion to visit the San Francisco Bay Area, please add a visit to Jameco to your tour.
