Though there are no plans yet to begin manufacturing Charlie on a large scale, you can catch a glimpse of him in his natural habitat on Saturday, June 28th. A guided tour courtesy of Choi and his mechanical feathered friend will depart from Eyebeam Studios at 2:30 and wind its way up to Bethsheda Terrace in Central Park. Impressing your neighbors just got a whole lot easier.
