Robot Revue
THURSDAY, MARCH 2. 7.00 p.m.
1094 Budapest, Liliom u. 41.
If we think of robots, hich-tech films, sterile car factories or domestic robots come to our mind, which have been developed in laboratories for long, long years. This event presents robots which are totally different from these comlex industrial robots. They are all unique ones, developed for different walks of life: community building, leisure, saving lives and education. Most of them have been built by teams of young people.  On the event four collectives present their projects and talk about the joy and opportunities of alternative robotics. The audience can also try the robots.
The Festival Buddy, known from different inland festivals, is a robot providing festival experience from the distance. The Buddy was sitting on the shoulders of festivalgoers, but was controlled by people who could not attend the festival. Participants could even get into physical contact beside talking to each other. So people were able to shoot someone with a waterpistol while sitting in an office.
The MOME Media Design MA diploma project, Stage of Impossibilities aims to integrate people with disabilities into art creation. Paralysed people can control puppets with the movements of their heads thanks to the fusion of traditional marinette theatre and robotics.
Rescube Robotics is a team which was established by young mechanics and students with the goal to come up with a life-saving robot for an international competition.  They have developed a robot in a garage, which won the award Best Outdoor CarryBot at the world championship 2016, the RoboCup Design Award Sponsored By Flower Robotics, and out of the 19 best life-saving robots it was ranked 9th. 
Thanks to REBOT even a child can build and programme a robot, getting to know the basics of AR as a creator instead of a consumer. The body of the robot can be built basicly from anything – from a plastic cup of sour cream to even a croissant. DIY robots are not only cost-effective but environment-friendly as well. In spite of their funny look these robots can be programmed for a lot of tasks and even can be controlled by Android devices.

AVICOM FAIMP 2.0 Award - ColourMirror


The digital installation, ColourMirror made by MOME TechLab has won bronze award in the category Interactive Multimedia at  AVICOM FAIMP 2.0. The announcement about the award given by ICOM (International Council of Museums) was made at the MUZEUM@DIGIT conference. ColourMirror is an accompanying project to the exhibition In the Mood for Colours at the Museum of Applied Arts, Budapest, developed by the Creative Technology Lab at the Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design, Budapest.


The interactive installation is a fun way of matching up visitors’ own colour schemes with the spectacular colours of the exhibits. The digital ColourMirror reflects how colourfully visitors are dressed. The Mirror scans your clothes and produces the matching colour palette. Then it finds the object in the exhibition with the most similar colours, and assembles a picture that you can send to yourself. It also collates data from other visitors to produce visualizations showing the colours most typical of the public during a particular period, and who was the most colourful visitor.


Many questions find answers through the use of the ColourMirror. Can we detect a warm sunny day from the colour of people’s clothes? Is there a difference in the colour palettes of tall people (mainly men) and short people (women and children)? Will visitors start to dress more colourfully so as to match with interesting exhibits? Will the exhibition have a long-term effect on what colours people prefer to dress in? The exhibition can still be visited in the first half of 2017.


The creators: Zoltán Csík-Kovács, Gáspár Hajdu, Ágoston Nagy, Gábor Papp, Zsófia Ruttkay, Bence Samu
