Devising Performance with Humans and Robots

Early this semester I met Michal Luria, a Ph.D. candidate at the Human-Computer Interaction Institute at Carnegie Mellon. With her I've gotten back into the robotics research I spent much of 2015 and 2016 doing through my residency at Mabou Mines (see: Let's Make A Lil' Human That Looks Like You And Me). But now, because of Michal and the robotics powerhouse that is Carnegie Mellon, I get to do the research WITH ROBOTS! I'm thrilled to be continuing and advancing my investigations into our robotics-filled future--and what it might mean for us humans, too.

We'll be getting down to devising later this month; stay tuned for updates from that. In the meantime, please enjoy the below very short video of a "Roomba Knife Fight."
