News from MSR - Issue 2.0

Postby Matt Denton » Wed Jul 23, 2008 12:31 pm

Hi all

We didn't expect to be mailing everyone so soon after Issue 1.0 - which featured Micromagic Systems - Robotics' forthcoming appearance at ArtBots 2008 at Trinity College Dublin - but we have just confirmed another public appearance for iC Hexapod, next week in London!

Science Museum, 29-31 July
iC and its creator Matt Denton will be meeting, greeting and interacting with visitors to the London Science Museum across next week. We'll be at the Antenna Gallery (ground floor of the Wellcome Wing) for sessions from 11am to 1pm and 2pm to 4pm each day.

Having appeared at London's Monster Mash festival in February, iC Hexapod is our interactive robot that can spot people's faces in a crowd, follow them around, and capture their image. We are also planning to broadcast live what it 'sees' across the large display screens at the Museum.

No booking is necessary, so come along and meet iC, and other cutting-edge robots from around the world including a troupe of pogo-dancing punk rock 'bots developed by Professor Peter McOwen and team from Queen Mary University.

More info: Science Museum, Exhibition Road, London SW7 2DD.

Just got the name of the event from the Museum:

    We’re calling the event Emotibots as it is about robots that can trigger emotional responses in people, or even look like they have human-like emotions themselves.
