London’s Science Museum is hosting a four-day festival of robotics celebrating innovation and exploring the cultural importance of robotics.
Robotville features more than 40 cutting-edge robots from research labs across Europe, divided into six catagories: domestic robots, swarming robots, swimming robots, exploring robots, and humanoid robots. Highlights include a talk asking if robots will rule the world, and the chance to speak with roboticists demonstrating thier robotic innovations.
Stuart Umbo, content developer at the Science Museum, said: “Robotville explores how robots will become an inherent part of life in the future. It explores how the idea of robots has pervaded our culture for hundreds of years, but is only now becoming a reality.”
Robotville runs until December 4 2011.
