Make Longer Cables – Short film by students at HfG Schwäbisch Gmünd

Created during a one-week introductory workshop to mechatronics, Make longer Cables is a short film by Philipp Schmitt, Stephan Bogner and Louis Fischediek that includes a custom made five-axis robotic arm trying to escape monotony by committing suicide.

Half-way into the workshop they were faced with a question what to do with it. Since most robots are generally involved in repetitive tasks, what if their robot - bored by its monotonous work, tried to commit suicide by pushing itself off the table? The result is this beautiful short film that not only humanises the robot but also a wonderful example of how programmed interaction may expand from object to environment.
