London Science Museum
RoboThespian is one of the stars in London Science Museum’s Robots exhibition. It explores the 500-year story of humanoid robots and the artistic and scientific quest to understand what it means to be human.
Set in five different periods and places, the exhibition features a unique collection of over 100 robots, from a 16th-century mechanical monk to robots from science fiction and modern-day research labs. Twelve of the robots are working models and you may even get the chance to interact with one.
RoboThespian as well as running preset performances, he also recognises people’s gender, age, time of day and greets people accordingly.
