Robot Art Lessons

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Robots seem to be everywhere - from car assembly on factory floors to debris sweeping on your kitchen floor. But, with the popularity of events like Maker Faire, they are broadly entering the creative fields in new and innovative ways. More than an exotic, whimsical exercise, much of the work behind robot-inspired art installations is driving the discovery of technical innovations in communications, control, security, and safety...all of which have potential value in manufacturing, retail, healthcare, and other core industries. In this session, you will learn about (1) quick definition and taxonomy of core robot tech, both hardware and software, (2) types of art installations, fairs, and competitions that have begun to emerge, (3) and lessons learned from the converging areas of materials science, haptics, interactive control, and communications that contribute to this new art form.
