• MIMIC
    AN EMOTION DRIVEN HUMAN AND ROBOT INTERACTIVE INSTALLATION
    2017 / TIFF Kids digiPlaySpace, Toronto

  • Mimic is a playful interactive installation that allows visitors to engage in a dialogue with a robot arm through gesture. The robot arm tracks people moving in the space, building up individual impressions of each person and reacting to their actions accordingly. These impressions are broken down into different robot feelings: trust, interest, and curiosity, which in turn affect how cautious or playful the robot arm is in its responses. Mimic can interact with many people simultaneously, changing its behavior and playfulness based on its feelings towards each person.
