Just a week ago a new edition of the Robot Film Festival took place in New York city.
This is something like the Oscars of robotics (actually they are called the Botskers). Awards to Best Robot actor, Best story are some of the popular ones. But there are some other tech-categories involved, as for example: Visionary futures, Ethics & Impact and Scientifically Hardcore.
Below you can watch at the 2011 Best Story winner, called “Out in the street”:
This is the main objective of the Festival founders:
“We encourage filmmakers to highlight innovation, explore frontiers before technically feasible and investigate humanity, machinery and the larger symbolisms within.”
Soon we will be showing you more films, we are quite happy to see how robots and art are getting closer and closer!
