Media Artist Filipe Vilas-Boas Explores Idea of #Robots and Disobedience

The Punishment is an art/media project by Filipe Vilas-Boas in which a robot executes a preventive punishment for its possible future disobedience. It is a reference to Isaac Asimov’s laws of robotics.

He states on his website:

Technologies are now merging at high speed, notably robotics and artificial intelligence. It raises a lot of questions about the man-machine relation. Tainted with dark humor, this dystopian anthropomorphization underlines the fears that robotics engenders. How automated do we want our world, our body to be? What physical, moral and legal framework should we use? What consequences for human life? Which post-work society should we build? Hasn’t time come to reinvent school? At the turn of the century, questions related to automation are popping up in everyone’s mind. We will have to answers them collectively, if possible.

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
