Interactive Soft Robotics Instalation
The project consists on a silicone body composed by a vital central zone that feeds the associated tentacles. Rorschach exists suspended, supported by wires associated with stepper motors that cause it to move in height. This allows an interaction between the users and the object, through a kinetic system, which reacts to human presence according to position and arms movement as the object shapes itself. The interaction starts as soon as the user is detected by the Kinect 2 and subsequently triggers each led associated with each member. Rorschach is composed of 5 tentacles, with the interaction being possible by 5 people at the same time.
