The Blind Robot

Blind Arm, Louis-Philippe Demers

The Blind Robot aims to understand the degrees of engagement, whether intellectual, emotional or phyisical, that are generated when a social robot intimately touches a person.

The robotic arm equipped with an articulated hand, will delicately explore the body of the visitor – mostly the face - in a manner that recalls what blind humans do to recognize a person or an object.The robot arm transforms from a high precision tool into a fragile, imprecise and emotionally loaded agent.
