Robonetica Explorer 1.0
Concept & visualization
Through this project, we intended to communicate the importance of AI in the world’s future. Robonetica Explorer 1.0 is an educational program aimed at providing coders, engineers, designers, and other enthusiasts with a prototype to implement in their science projects.
For this purpose, we developed a promotional video along with static renders in the context environment; ideologically Explorer 1.0 was created to be an ‘ambassador of Earth’ on another planet, setting an idea to make it look like a living creature rather than an autonomous robot. Working at the junction of modern scientific achievements and design, the search for aesthetics in engineering projects alike continues to be our highest interest.
