Lonely Home Bench


Created by Tobi Schneidler and maoworks, it's at the Victoria & Albert Museum in London until August 29th as part of the "Touch Me" exhibition.

It's alive: part domestic furniture and part robotic pet.

You sit on it and it might try to throw you off.

You toss a magazine on it and it dumps it on the floor.

You stroke it and it wiggles.

Internal sensors and actuators give it a personality.


Kind of like how you operate, now that I think about it.
