Ikea Robotics

June 7th, 2010

Ikea Robotics was Adam Lassy his thesis project at ITP, Tisch School of the Arts in New York. He modified Ikea furniture to create mobile, wireless robots which can sense the spatial needs of it’s owner. The first video demos this behaviour. The second I find even more interesting, here he programmed the furniture to display some animal characteristics.

    nice project, pretty much the same as Max Dean’s Table but with Ikea furniture and a decade later… still like the DIY feel.
