Outerspace

The Senstor reminded me of another project called Outerspace, I’m so surprised that I didn’t post this before. It was a project which Andre Stubbe and Markus Lerner did during their time at the UDK Berlin in 2004.
Outerspace is a reactive robotic creature with animal-like behaviour. It can react to humans thanks to the photo sensors in the top part and capacitory sensors that react to human body contact. There’re some nice videos on the website showing this interaction.

Tiene photo sensores y senrores capatitivos para saber cuando lo tocan y reaccionar. Me impresiona ver la poca cantidad de circuitos que lleva. Hay mas videos en su website. Vía T&T […]

    Can’t find it anymore but this reminds me of some experiment or assignment where people had to manipulate a lamp so it would show human characteristics like: curiosity, tenderness, … I think it was part of some kind of workshop about animation or product design or creativity… I couldn’t trace it back anymore on the web. If anyone knows what I’m talking about I would really appreciate the reply…
