Life/Machines / Men/Machine Scenarios


In times of rapidly over ageing societies in industrialized countries, concepts of domestic mobile robotics emerge as a realistic vision of the nearby future. The \"Life/Machine\" project
investigates in a world, where robots coexist and serve in the domestic environment, helping, assisting in everyday routines and scenarios like: Teeth Brushing, Shaving, Serving of Nutrition and Leisure. These scenarios illustrate life in a very extreme and satiric, but in a critical and playful way.
How will our domestic product landscape have to be organized, once this binary based machine will be around?
How much of our freedom will we have to give up?
