Robot 5

Do you remember the scene in the movie Big when they create a toy that transforms from a building into a robot, and Tom Hanks proclaims “what’s fun about that?” I might’ve been the one kid that thought it was fun.

Here’s an animation from the first Baran Studio robot in some time. I will do my best to post updates on it’s development.

    The relationship between man and machine seems ambiguous in this scenario. What are the little black figures doing here? Do they exist in a symbiotic relationship, or are they masters of this machine? Or does the machine control them? I want to believe the robot is somewhat friendly, like a nice neighbor who you can borrow a cup of sugar from every now and then.

    I thought your intuition in previous man/machine research was more interesting though: a melding of the two, producing a new thing which is even more ambiguous. Can we see more?
