About the Item

The Self-Charming Robo-Snake interacts with the viewer using a camera-eye and neural network. Sensing and analysing human movements, the Robo-Snake starts undulating in a kind of dance. Electric motor actuators emit sounds in the joints of her complex body and the viewer becomes an accomplice in the action.

Nail Salmanov, Max M. (electronics specialist), Alexey Borisov (software developer), Yaroslav Kravtsov worked on the project
