Design a botfamily icon

Families are invited to participate in a collaborative digital artwork by designing their own robot.

Inspired by Code-A-Bot, The Cube's new interactive digital game, Design a bot is an installation designed to engage a younger audience by blending their interaction between physical and digital spaces.

These robots are inefficient and need to learn the skills to do their job properly and more importantly – they lack personality! Colour in a robot template and scan it instantly into a 3D world, where it will come alive and attempt to perform its duty. Be prepared though, there is a lot of recyclable junk to sort, and their wheels are still a little wobbly...

Code-A-Bot will launch at Robotronica on 20 August. Afterwards, it will rotate on The Cube's screens, view Cube screens for showing times.
