Artificial Life Robotic Sculpture Series
The Autotelematic Spider Bots 2006, is a new artificial life robotic installation. It consists of 10 spider-like sculptures that interact with the public in real-time and self-modify their behaviors, based on their interaction with the viewer, themselves, their environment and their food source.
The Auto telematic Spider Bots installation is an artificial life chimera; a robotic spider, eating and finding its food like an ant, seeing like a bat with the voice of an electronic twittering bird.
The spider bots see participants in the installation with long distance ultrasonic eyes at the end of a springy antennae-like neck. The ultrasonic eyes at the end of this antennae allow the robots to see out to a distance of 3-4 meters and allow human interaction.
