Parts of Atlanta are covered in murals, but what if there were one on every surface of our city? That’s the dream of some Georgia Tech freshmen, who are building a a wall-climbing, spray-painting robot called the Color Slug.

The Color Slug was a finalist for the Goat Farm and Hambidge Center’s Field Experiments. Producer Gabbie Watts followed them through the process of making their first prototype for that competition.
