Mimus is an interactive installation for the Design Museum in London. Mimus allows you to interact with a large industrial robot in the same way you would an animal at the zoo or you're pet at home. The robot is able to sense its environment and respond to those within the environment. Our goal is to help transform the fearful relationship between humans and machines into an empathetic one. I am the Technical Lead for this project, heading robotic and hardware development for ATONATON.
This installation is part of the Design Museum's new exhibition, Fear and Love. It opens to the public on November 24th, 2016 and runs until April 23rd, 2017. Until then, enjoy the demo video below.
