Luna, Future Robot Overlord?

SchultzeWORKS designstudio is proud to announce a breakthrough in robot design. Commissioned by RoboDynamics of Santa Monica, CA, ‘Luna’ is the world’s first personal robot integrating three unique feature sets : Luna is completely expandable via expansion ports, fully programmable with open standards and, above all, affordable.

The industrial design work for Luna addressed dual and conflicting demands between design and engineering. The engineering challenge was to incorporate the client’s existing and proven TiLR robot hardware, firmware, and drive train. The design challenge was to create an original and compelling techno-beauty that would engage users and invite interaction.

  • Apologies, but this design reads too much like Rosie, the Jetsons' robot maid, to be used by the vast majority of men or women as a telepresence robot. Remember, both men and women are interested in the power politics of appearance in meetings. Most would opt for voice only rather than this.

    Cheers,
    Mike

    Okay, I love you design, and I really think this is practical means of robot. But, do you (as a designer) can design an executive machinery that will be serving the purpose as you have written? I believe, we still troubles with them. And, it is not really practical to even say that how robots should look like.

    Stick a Roomba under that skirt and functionality goes up drastically.
