Nicholas Stedman & Rhya Tamasauskas
Textiles, Foam, Plastic, Electronics, Motors

Tribot is an alien companion. With three equadistant legs radiating from its center, and limited touch sensibility, the robot attempts to blindly navigate through a given space. For ArtBots, the artists will take Tribot on a walk through parts of New York City and document the event. This is done in an attempt to generate social interaction with the machine. During the exhibition, Tribot will be displayed as an artifact, along with its garments and the documentation, so the audience may examine the various aspects of the project.
