Objective

Create a play where robots and human actors team up on stage.

Challenges

  • Synchronize humans and robots as part of a play
  • Propose a functional and aesthetical design
  • Provide tools for the easy programming of the robots

Solution

After defining the requirements of the three robots with the artists, BlueBotics teamed up
with industrial designers from the écal (University of art and design, Lausanne) and with the automaton maker François Junod.

This collaboration gave birth to three robot actors:

  •  Igor, the butler;
  •  Bruno, the dog;
  •  Leila, the lover.
