Outerspace is a reactive robotic creature with animal-like behaviour. Outerspace’s fundamental motivation for any behaviour is based on curiosity, the desire to explore the surrounding space looking for contact. Touch it, play with it and watch its behaviour.

The project is at the edge of art and design involving various aspects of industrial design, physical computing & artificial intelligence.
