Robot designs by Rob Saunders and Petra Gemeinboeck

Close to my heart, Rob Saunders and Petra Gemeinboeck’s work strives hard to really make robots that are doing things that make you think about what they are doing, to get a robot’s eye view of the world, best used as a mirror to see yourself in all your mechanistic non-dualist glory. Saunders is the programming talent behind the project, but he also achieves a rare blend by approaching the technical challenges of this art with a deeply philosophical mind-set. Or to put another way, he is a creative practitioner of what the AI researcher Inman Harvey calls ‘philosophy with a screwdriver’.
