Nicholas Stedman & Juanma Sarrio

Introduction:
Nicholas Stedman is a Toronto-based artist making electronic devices with unusual applications. These have ranged from tactile robots to a machine for feeling ice from a distance to a chalice that automatically transubstantiates wine. The devices are enacted in galleries, festivals or other public forums where people can try them out, or watch as others explore. He is keeping a blog at http://nickstedman.wordpress.com/

Juanma Sarrió has recently graduated as an architect from Alicante (Spain). In the meantime when he is searching for a job, he is keeping researching on issues of programming and robotics, f.ex by writing on his blosite: http://randomarq.wordpress.com/. His final project, as you can watch below, was made with the new technologies applied to architecture (Processing, Arduino, Grasshopper).


How did your interest in robots / robotics start?
Nicholas: I wanted a companion, so I made one. Juanma: Since I was a little boy, I've always been fascinated by robots and in general, any device that moves or do something.

What kind of actions needs to be done in the community to increase the interest and the awareness of robots / robotics?
Nicholas: More people need to experience a state of the art robot first hand. Juanma: I think that projects like Arduino (or similar) are essential for those who aren't programmers, mechanical engineers can get closer to the exciting world of Robotics. I think the community should be more generally open and sharing knowledge.
