roboZoo

Interactively performing environment establishing direct communication between a human and an artifitial object. Robotic entities are completely independent from each other and free from human control. Having their own distinct logic and physicality they react to specific local conditions in their own manner. The microprocessor inside of each entity receives information about its immediate environment by three ultrasonic sensors. Based on simple rules the perceptions are processed and a specific "muscle response" is generated and transmitted to the servos. The robot moves in certain way while emitting light and sounds. One can observe the behavior of the robotic entities and try to find patterns in it. This way robots react not only to the environment but also the other entities and people. The communication ultimately happens when a person (or a collective) gets involved in this unprecedented inter-action without words and pre-defined rules.
