Paperbots is a small device built with LEGO Mindstorms that reacts to motion or presence by moving paper foldings. It combines digital and physical computation, i.e., low tech kinetic properties of materials - the memory of folded paper - with visual coding and mechanical actuators as found in LEGO Mindstorms. Paperbots are artbots that want to challenge the common perception of what a robot is through its ephemeral qualities, fragility and playfulness, as well as the ease of construction and reproduction. The objects in the exhibition are the result of the workshop held prior to the festival.

Paperbots is a small device built with LEGO Mindstorms that reacts to motion or presence by moving paper foldings (origami). It combines digital and physical computation, i.e., low tech kinetic properties of materials - the memory of folded paper - with visual coding, mechanical actuators and sensors as found in LEGO Mindstorms.
