Robotainment – A Brand New Type of Entertainment


Robotainment? What’s behind the name? We thought we should explore the fringes of animation and create a completely new relationship between acting/puppetry and robots. As we know, theater can invent itself anew each day—and our contribution to it is a new entertainment format. At the interface of informatics/mathematics and the performing arts/puppet theater we are researching a new form of presentation/performance in which the subject is situated in the Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) context. In this presentation we will introduce the results of our research thus far in an entertaining manner. At first a small robots takes center stage to get the ball rolling, so to say. This project is based on the content of one diploma degree theses by students from the HTL Mistelbach.
