Robot Twin Concept with a Twist

Posted 5 Jun 2009 at 14:40 UTC by Rog-a-matic Share This


Breaking the servant robot mold, concept designer Paul Grader offers an interesting vision of robot behavior with Pushya and Pullya. This pair of mechanical companions deliver both helpfulness and mischievousness. Pullya follows instructions, does the chores on time, is predictable, and knows how to make you happy. Pushya on the other gripper, might wander off, sell your electronic goodies on the street corner, and knows what buttons to push to make you furious. The idea of good or evil is not easily pinned on modern conveniences such as our dish washers and vacuum cleaners, but since many human parents can relate to this type of situation all too well, asymmetrical behavior from our future assistants might actually help us connect and accept them as more than mere machines.
