My human robots bringing the future and some wonder to a shopping mall in Delft, Netherlands

Human robot giving fist bump through windows at a shopping mall in Delft, Netherlands

The De Hoven Passage is a charming little shopping mall in Delft, Netherlands. This year, it is celebrating its 50th anniversary. And instead of looking back, De Hoven has been hosting a variety of robot-themed events to praise the future. The Menschine robots were invited to be part of the Robotica Market last Saturday, and we had a lot of fun with and among the visitors.

Combining walkabout performance with event photography: Watch this new teaser video for my latest robot character polaDroid!

Silent Rocco's robot act polaDroid

My new robot character polaDroid is available for bookings now! PolaDroid combines a stunning robot walkabout act with the profession of an event photographer. This vintage robot with a camera head takes instant photos of his audiences and spits them out, literally! Just watch this short VHS clip:

Human robot promoting the unconditional basic income at the German film premiere of Free Lunch Society in Berlin

Free Lunch Society

On February 1st, Germany film production company OVALmedia organized the crowd premiere of the documentary Free Lunch Society – Come Come Basic Income, the world’s first feature film about the universal or unconditional basic income. As a strong supporter of this concept I sent my Menschine robot to the movie theater to support this event!

Check out the new festival trailer for the neon fairytale The Greatest Thing (YouTube, 2:12 min)
