About the Robot
The robot started in 2008 as a Burning Man project with the intent to create spontaneous and impromptu dance parties. I liked the idea of a sound source which is itself alive and dancing to the music it creates. The robot inspires the dancer within all who encounter him. And that’s what it’s really all about in the end. Dancing.
The project has gone through many peaks and valleys. The result is my current robot, which is the third model I’ve built. I’m continuing to find ways to improve the project and there will be a robot 4.0 eventually.
In the meantime the robot is available to DJ at your party! You can plug him right into your iphone, android, mp3 player, whatever you want. No matter what music comes out of him, you can bet he’ll be dancing to it. He also comes with a microphone for announcements and for karaoke. If you’re interested, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have pictures or video that you’ve taken of the robot that you’d like to share, send them my way and I’ll post them on the website. I’m happy to credit you if you like.
You can follow the robot on facebook, just search for Robot Dance Party. He is also on twitter @RobotDanceParty. I always post before performances and I love feedback.
Hope to see you at the next dance party!
