Kacie Of Tisch School of the Arts Sets Up Robo-Experiment In Washington Square Park

Posted Apr 13, 2009

Kacie, a student at the Tisch School of the Arts has put together a cute little robot that travels in one direction. The robot is being used as an experiment to see how helpful humans are when a robot needs help. The two robots that roll straightforward have a flag on them that says where they are trying to go. Humans are responsible for helping them get there. The robots started their journey close to Washington Square Park, New York.

The experiment was pretty successful because Kacie found out that people could not resist picking up the robots when they ended up travelling to the wrong places. Godspeed, little robots! Check out the video demo below of the experiment in effect (the music is catchy too):
