Remote-Controlled Robots to Patrol British Art Museum at Night
Three artists won a digital arts prize when they proposed to have user-controlled robots roam the Tate Britain museum at night. The IK Prize is awarded annually "to original ideas using digital technology to help connect the Tate collection to a wider audience."
Tommaso Lanza, Ross Cairns and David de Duca, known as "The Workers" are the winners of the prize, which includes £10,000 and a £60,000 budget.
The robots "would be controlled by users from the comfort of their homes, with people able to steer them where they want, and zoom in on what they want, when they want."
