A Sheffield Robotics and Instant Dissidence’s R&D project investigating hybrid dances between humans and robots.

The researchers at Sheffield Robotics study the relationship between human being and robots, in order better to understand both. The exhibition will feature both robot and human dancers, and offer an interesting glimpse into our human future.

It is interactive, too – you can try dancing with a robot, and so understand more about robots today, and about your own body.

Hope to see some of you there!!!
