Real science: Tweenbots: Will you please help this cute little lost robot reach the other end of the city?
In an unusual experiment, a little toy robot navigates across New York City - with kind help from complete strangers!
"Tweenbots are human-dependent robots that navigate the city with the help of pedestrians they encounter. Rolling at a constant speed, in a straight line, Tweenbots have a destination displayed on a flag, and rely on people they meet to read this flag and to aim them in the right direction to reach their goal."
PS: Linked page has an embedded video too - of the little bot's journey & its interactions with strangers.
