Robot Theater in São Paulo

The Portuguese robot artist Leonel Moura, creator of the first zoo in the world for artificial life Robotarium (2007) has recently debuted with his redesigned Karel Capeks classic play R.U.R. (Rossum's Universal Robots) in São Paulo, Brazil. The artist famous for his creative robot installations uses real autonomous robots, acting and interacting with human actors. The navigation system to guide the robots on stage and the interactive abilities that give life to these machines was developed by  the Portuguese company selfTecha spin-off of the Lisbon's Institute for Systems and Robotics
