In Pictures: Robot Army Takes Over Trafalgar Square
This is gonna be my trip into town tomorrow to have a look. Apparently it looks impressive but you can’t really see the text with the human eye, shame but still worth a look.
Outrace, the major installation at Trafalgar Square for this year’s London Design Festival, was switched on last night. Designed by Reed Kram and Clemens Weisshaar, the installation consists of eight robotic arms, borrowed from the Audi production line, and each fitted with a powerful light strip. Punters are able to text a short message to a computer, and the arms then move in sync to ‘draw’ that message in the night sky.
