Creative Concept

A friendly robot that can follow people and make funny (reassuring) noises.

Outcome: explores the early relationships between people and robots and how personality can be presented on a limited time-frame/budget.

Influenced by Disney etc. movies and contemporary capitalism.

A configurable floor robot that costs only ~$400 (including to ship over from the US): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NBMiH6AmBaM

Plus attach and configure a primesense or Kinect 3D camera and a speaker/microphone.

Collaborators: Ronan Whitteker + more tbc.
