Roborigami is a robotic origami installation made in collaboration between an artist, robotic scientist and interaction designer. We offer talks, events installation and workshops.
Breath controlled resonant #origami from Pete Bennett in collaboration with @giant_origami #ResonantBits #Paper & #xOSC
You will be taught how to fold giant origami fox, code, wire up the electronics and assemble them together to create a Roborigami Fox in a fun yet informative and experimental workshop.
Join us at Roborigami workshop, and you will be surprised to learn how simple and easy making robot is. You will go home with a cute Roborigami Fox and be equipped with knowledge that enable you to create your version of Roborigami.

Dr Ad Spiers
Ad is a postdoctoral lab associate at Yale University. He investigates technology that communicates via the sense of touch (haptics) and human movement, and its application to future surgical practice. Ad has been obsessed with all things robotic since seeing the movie Short Circuit as a child. He has also created hand held robotic flowers that guide blind and sighted people through dark installations and drawing robots that add their own style to an artist’s instructions. hauntedpliers.co.uk

Roborigami is a giant robotic origami installation created in collaboration between an artist, robotic scientist and interaction designer. It is a harmony of modern robotics technology with the traditional craft of origami. Roborigami aims to evoke a sense of serene melancholy and a spiritual longing and encourage the audience to slow down, take notice of surroundings and appreciate the passing of time.
