Swedish dance-pop star Robyn seems to like robots. "Fembot," "Robotboy," and "The Girl and the Robot" (which she recorded with Röyksopp) are all part of her catalog. So far, the only thing that’s been missing is a droid of her own - and now, thanks to some creative robotics students in Stockholm, she has one.
The Robot Project is a nearly year-long endeavor by a group of mechatronics students at Sweden’s technical university KTH. (And yes, "mechatronics" sounds cooler than any other field you could possibly pursue.) The robot, which was is made of an amalgamation of moped motors and 3-D printed parts, listens to music and dances on its own (as is only right). And yes, Robyn gave input on the project; she even gave the team a book about the Apollo moon landing to help explain her aesthetic vision.
