Robot Interaction Design In Aesthetic Public Spaces
The Exhibition is the Heart of Cafe Neu Romance. Here you can discover robotic concepts, designs, products, art works, audio visuals and more.
While the content of the exhibition during the first two editions has been to present the diversity in expressions on robots and robotics from various positions, the future editions of the festival will start to focus more on the year's main theme of the festival, a more fun interaction and education design of the exhition, the smart, cosy and green robotic solutions which on one hand also can be used in the homes, and on the hand can solve issues in the society, which can lead to a mor sustainable society of the future, plus to create a better space for matchmaking between robotics professionals.
