what is this?Another brilliant idea comes from [Niklas Roy] with [Kati Hyyppä] Combining art and electronics with our zeitgeist and mass recycling of odds and ends? you are right. Their studio in East Berlin used to be a retail store and therefore has a large display window. This seems perfect for a pair of artists in a pandemic because they can communicate with the community through what is displayed in the window.Recently, it is This interactive robot baby We chose to call Cybaby.
You might recognize Cybaby as a Robosapien robot that is very easy to crack, but it has a doll head. (It also has a red eye, which really blends its appearance.) In the window, Cybaby is active and staggering against the backdrop of growth and evolution in the weeks of spring and summer this year. Passersby can join the network and use their smartphones to control Cybaby from the outside to move it around, press various buttons to change its environment, and trigger some sensors here and there. Robosapien has been around for about 20 years, so there is already Arduino code that can basically simulate Its R/C signal. [Niklas] with [Kati] Use NodeMCU (ESP12-E) to send pulses to the IR input of the robot.
Going back to the forefront of the comic zeitgeist, there is a hair salon, a convenience store, and a dancing nightclub that need to (naturally) successfully pass the test center first. Oh, there is a laboratory next door to the nightclub, no matter what it tries or how to cry, Cybaby can’t access it. Check it after a break.
For some reason, Robosapien’s post is missing, so this is [Niklas] with [Kati] Before the Cybaby world, they had a very cool pen plotter in their window that could print messages sent by people passing by.
