What happens when you give Ross Lynch, Chrissie Fit & John Deluca from “Teen Beach 2” a BeachBot? Something creative of course!
The trio teamed up with Disney ABC Television Group’s “Summer Creativity” initiative where they hit the beach and met with some Inner City Art Students. The trio and the students had the chance to experience something cool that combines art and technology – Disney Research’s robot invention, BeachBot – during an afternoon in Playa del Rey, CA. release. We have to say, that BeachBot is awesome!
