Robot versus robot – art meets technology at Robotarium X

The gap between art and technology has never been thinner; the extent to which it exists at all is down to the individual artist or engineer. Leonel Moura seems to be straddling the line, having created Robotarium X – a ‘zoo’ for artificially intelligent robots that respond to the presence of visitors and fight amongst themselves in imitation of biological ecosystems. Sound like a J. G. Ballard plot to me.
