Created by Alexia Léchot at ECAL, Deltu is a delta robot (wiki) with a personality that interacts with humans using two iPads. Created using arm technology normally found in 3d printers, Deltu usesthree different applications on the iPad Alexia built for it, using symmetry as an interpretation, a mirror and a reflexion of our own image.
The first game is a drawing game named “Together”, where Deltu mimics and interprets what we draw. The second one is a battle between the machine and the human. And the final third one is a memory game where the human must learn from the robot. Alexia designed these three games are a reflexion of the special relationship we have with robots and the evolution of this relationship.
Earlier this year at ECAL (Lausanne/Switzerland), students were asked to develop projects using the Thymio robot during a one week workshop. Students worked then in group with the task to make Thymio(s) write a word, all those words was then put together to form a sentences that you can discover in the video below.
