Performance Robots (Cubebots)

In collaboration with the QUT section of the Australian Centre of Robotic Vision (QUT CyPhy) QUTRC helped to design, build and code numerous cube shaped robots with RGB strips inside to illuminate the translucent exterior and mannequin parts. The robots were used as part of the 2015 Robotronica Human and Robot collaborative dance show. Approximately 20-30 of the robots where made with there being two versions:

  • Laser cut 3mm MDF central differential wheel placement
  • Folded and pot riveted sheet metal with central and forward differential wheel placement
