After the awesome lamp Pinokio, let me introduce you Vincent & Emily, two robots powered by Raspberry Pi, Arduino, Accelerometer, Stepper, Servo, Camera, Microphone, IR-LED. Software includes Linux Arch, Python and OpenCV. A bunch of different technology put together by Nikolas Schmid-Pfähler and Carolin Liebl from nachtproduktion.
Vincent and Emily are two self-willed robots that show the viewer the solitude of a partner relationship and simultaneously the involvement of the partners in society and their impulses. They capture sounds and movements via sensors and react on those signals with own expressions. The movement of the robots is realized by a pulling system, consisting of three motors whose rotation is transformed into a linear motion via gear wheels and gear racks.
