Tweenbots in the city by artist Kacie Kinzer

Kacie Kinzer’s tweenbots are super cute, and the interactive concept is really cool. From her web page:

Tweenbots are human-dependent robots that navigate the city with the help of pedestrians they encounter. Rolling at a constant speed, in a straight line, Tweenbots have a destination displayed on a flag, and rely on people they meet to read this flag and to aim them in the right direction to reach their goal.

Her web page includes a really nice video of people interacting with the bots. In there is a good samaritan with a fabulous handbag I covet. But I digress, as I often do.

This photo is from the artist’s website. Check it out, and give a bot a hand if you see one!
