The Traveling Tweenbot

tweenbot
The tweenbot is a cute little robot with a cardboard body which NYU art student Kacie Kinzer conceived of as an experiment in the kindness of strangers. The tweenbot is equipped with a flag stating its intended destination. It can only move forward and can’t anticipate or avoid obstacles, so it depends on passerbys to set it back on course when it gets stuck. The results of the experiment were suprising.
