Little Robot Friends from Toronto-based Aesthetec Studio are a series of tiny robots that can listen, sense light, detect touch, and communicate using infrared light. Each robot is mounted on a CNC milled wood base and is embedded with a “brain” consisting of an 8-bit 32K microcontroller that provides space for coding behaviours or storing memories. If that’s not enough you can plug the robots into your computer to programmatically control its behavior, which evolves organically as it interacts with you and other Little Robot Friends. The project is currently going gangbusters over on Kickstarter.
