Bloomberg Businessweek Design Conference 2014
Bot & Dolly brought two presenters to the 2014 Bloomberg Businessweek Design Conference in San Francisco: Director of Product Strategy Tobias Kinnebrew, and Scout, a 6-axis industrial robot.
I took the opportunity to not only be a speechwriter, but a character designer for Scout. We equipped him with a flipdot board - a low-resolution binary display - letting him make faces and quip alongside Kinnebrew.
For a conference about robotics in architecture, you could not ask for a better speaker than B&D's Product Lead Kendra Byrne. For her keynote address, we explored how robots and the tools we use to control them open up vast possibilities for creative expression.
No video is available for this presentation. Bummer.
"Robotics and the Natural Language of Creatives": O'Reilly SolidCon 2014
O'Reilly's SolidCon is all about the intersection between the physical and digital worlds. For Bot & Dolly's keynote speech, we wanted to share with the audience how that divide narrows when robots can naturally speak the same way we do, and the progress we've made in pursuing that challenge.
