If you forgot what cute is, then look at this little bugger, a project created by the Tisch School of Arts student Kacie Kinzer. This tweenbot is equipped with a flag stating it’s destination and since it can only move forward, it soley depends on stranger’s kindness to point it in the correct direction so it can reach it’s destination.

“In New York City, we are very occupied with getting from one place to another. I wondered: could a human-like object traverse sidewalks and streets along with us, and in so doing, create a narrative about our relationship to space and our willingness to interact with what we find in it? More importantly, how could our actions be seen within a larger context of human connection that emerges from the complexity of the city itself? To answer these questions, I built robots.”
