Tweenbots: displaying our humanness

Tweenbots

Something about this is neat. The act of helping is so ingrained and helping robots reveals something inherent about our humanness. Were these ppl helping to be a part of something? Or because they knew there must be human behind it?

Unorganised crowd sourcing.

Fascinating.

One thought on “Tweenbots: displaying our humanness

  1. I love this – I think two things:
    1. perhaps it’s less threatening to help a robot than a human being
    2. obviously they didn’t get the message that we got in Australia about being alert to random acts of terrorism! It could have been loaded with C4! lol
    That’s mostly the only things I think at the moment.
