Walking Head Combines Fear Of Spiders With Fear Of Creepy Autonomous Robots

Walking Head

Even if you don’t appreciate art, you can’t deny that this Walking Head Robot by Australian artist Stelarc is captivating. Among other features, the Walking Head has a scanning ultra-sound sensor that detects a human presence. When a person does enter the gallery, it will stand and go through a pre-programmed series of movements – using its tilt sensor system to help orientate itself. It can also react with a series of facial behaviors like nods, turns, tilts, and even vocalizations.

Yeah, it’s creepy – but imagine combining it with this.

The Walking Head Robot is set to make it’s debut at the dott 07 festival this October. More pictures are available after the break.
