MORPHs: Roaming Robot at the Park
MORPHs [MObile Reconfigurable PolyHedra] are octahedral robots which can roam around parks and interact with the public and their environments. Their intent is not only to provide a dynamic and playful environment for play areas within public parks, but also to encourage younger generations to engage with computational technology from an early age. Check out the BBC interview covering Morphs, here.
Our latest prototype – Morph 2.0 – was field tested at Regent’s Park (London), capturing the attention of young children and adults alike. Read more about how it works and how it was built, here.
