Rock & Paper & Scissors in Amber 08

We have joined to the exhibition Amber 08 ( http://www.a-m-b-e-r.org/ ) with our robot arm playing Rock & Paper & Scissors. I don’t have the photos and videos from the exhibition yet, but check out these final photos of the robot with the protective stand we have prepared *winks to Kemal and Gulay* for the exhibition.

Unnecessary calculations, “Was the protective stand really required?” We have done some tests with 10 subject and reached these calculations:
– %60 of the subjects tried handshaking with the robot
– %20 gave the robot a high five
– %10 spilled coke on it (this wasn’t a part of the experimentation, happened randomly, but still.)
– %10 of the subjects tried pulling its finger, while hoping it will respond by farting. (I have decided not to see that subject again.)
