Madeline Gannon the Robot Tamer & Mimus

Madeline the Robot Tamer & Mimus from Pier 9 on Vimeo.

Mimus is a giant industrial robot that's curious about the world around her. Mimus sees the world differently than us - she uses sensors embedded in the ceiling above to see everyone around her simultaneously. Mimus can react and move quickly around her space to follow your actions and try to decipher your body language.

Madeline Gannon, who created Mimus, believes that the robots of the future shouldn't replace us, but rather augment our own abilities and be designed with a focus on human interaction. Her goal in this exhibit is that the behavior and design are intuitive in a way that people who have never even seen a robot before will be able to immediately understand how to interact with Mimus.

Mimus will be on exhibit at the opening of The Design Museum in London on November 24th, 2016. Visit here to find out more - designmuseum.org
