Worm: Robot you can scare

This robotic worm moves around and bows at who ever gets close to it. The piece was received by the audience as a strange pet. No artificial intelligence was involved, but people grew attached to the unpredictable personality, controlled by the unpredictable factors in my camera vision software. The robot was a model for a larger installation entitled 'garden of lovers' in which a 5x5 grid of life-size robotic worms would dance together in response to who ever was walking around amongst them. This was a proposal (which i am still looking for) and this single interactive prototype.

I built for "Interactive Multimedia" in the UCLA Hypermedia Studio, within the dept. of FilmTV, under the instruction of Jeff Burke, Jason Brush, and Fabian Wagmeister.
