ADB (after Deep Blue)

Interactive art

Nicholas STEDMAN [Canada]


ADB (after Deep Blue) is a modular robot which physically interacts with people. It writhes, wriggles, twists and squeezes in response to how it is held and touched. ADB adapts to, and reciprocates the energy you put into it. When touched, it comes to life. When stroked, it seeks more contact. And when handled aggressively, it responds in kind.
