One of the most interesting aspects of developing Spillikin, has been the opportunity to have conversations with people who know a lot more than we do about the world of robotics. We have felt very lucky in having been so enthusiastically supported by Engineered Arts in particular, our primary collaborator and provider of Raybot (aka Robothespian), our robot lead. Check out their website for more information about this remarkable company:
Through the connection with Engineered Arts, we have been also able to reach an amazing range of university research departments around the country, to provide a sounding board for ideas and to be a first audience for early drafts of the play. We'd like to introduce you to some of these people in future posts.
