What's a Keepon? Well... Keepon starred in this YouTube video a few years ago.
Keepon's day job, however, is working with children, especially those who are autistic or otherwise developmentally challenged. Keepon engages children, encouraging them to make eye contact and interact.
What to knit a robot with such important work? I decided to go with a superhero theme. But not a real superhero. Keepon would be a pretend superhero in a homemade cape of traffic cone orange. A matching sweatband, too!
