Footage of PKD Robot at NextFest

May 28, 2009

Here is some footage that a NexFest visitor took of the Philip K Dick android in June 2005. This is probably the best footage we’ve seen of the android, in part because of Olney’s detailed explanation at the start: “in his books and movies there are really advanced robots that are just like people. So we thought it would be really cool to make art to make a robt. So that’s what it is, it’s an interactive sculpture.”
He continues to introduce the robot, and explains that it’s looking around, scanning the room for faces.
