The Misbehavior of Animated Objects

 


The Workshop “The Misbehavior of Animated Objects”, for TEI 2014 [8th International Conference on Tangible, Embedded and Embodied Interaction], was developped in collaboration with the EnsadLab / Sociable Media Program (Program under the direction of Rémy Bourganel), with Émeline Brulé and Max Mollon, with the support of the Labex Arts-H2H (in the framework of the research project The Behavior of Things) and of the Bettencourt Schueller Foundation in the frame of Chaire Innovation et Savoir faire, in relationship to the Tangible Media Group of the MIT Medialab, with the participation of Jean-Baptiste Labrune and Nicolas Nova.

How to create & animate an object of simple, abstract form which movement would confer a behavior? How to give the impression that such an object have a personality allowing to be proactive, with self-motivated behavior, not directly responding to our expectations, or even challenging them through the demonstration of mis-behavior? To address these questions, we propose a studio allowing to design and rapid-prototype such object from an easily accessible toolbox (hardware and software) for the studio’s audience to experiment with: MisB KIT

The MisB KIT
A Modular Robotic Toolkit to prototype and experiment Behavioral Objects

The MisB KIT is developed by the Reflective Interaction Team, and more specifically by Didier Bouchon, Cécile Bucher, Martin Gautron, Benoît Verjat and Alexandre Saunier.
This toolkit was initiated with the Sociable Media Program for the Workshop “The Misbehavior of Animated Objects”, TEI 2014, with the support of the Labex Arts-H2H and the Bettencourt Schueller Foundation in the frame of Chaire Innovation et Savoir faire.
