This latest iteration of Art-Bot, constructed with the help of the Hexagram Institute, consists of three robotic arms all mounted on a table top. All three arms move in tandem and receive and transmit haptic and tactile force feedback and sound vibrotactility. One of the arms is sculpting and interacting with materials such as wood, ice or foam and the other two arms are held by two participants that can communicate to each other the movements and sensations of the materials being worked on. The sculpting robot transmits and communicates touch from all three arms to both participants. Touch is transmitted to and between the materials and the participants in a silent conversation of interactive tactile transference.
