“Heron” – A smart prototype robot for archaeology.
Archaeologists need robots for a main purpose: to explore where it’s too dangerous for humans.
There are two major trends when it comes to archeology bots. One is the use of robots to get to places that are inaccessible or dangerous for humans, and the other is the development of robots for repetitive tasks.
We created Heron v2018 with a touch of glamour and sensuality.
“Rather than designing human looking robots, we need to design robots with a sense of beauty”
