From the 2014 Solid Conference: In this day and age, we usually consider robots to be utilitarian, problem solvers. But there is another use for robots, that is for artistic expression.
In this fun, energetic talk, we will explore controlling multiple robots in real time. Roombas sway to gentle computer generated music, while Sphero balls roll with flashing lights. This robot jam will culminate in spectacular finale when the AR Drones fly in to join the dance.
