Mixed Robotic Interface is a project-based design-research investigation, studying new ways of creating hybridized cyber-physical design and experience interfaces, at the intersection of robotics—as its core component, and augmented reality, game design, projection mapping, and digital fabrication. Mixed Robotic Interface Г—as part of Mixed Robotic Interface series of research projects, focuses on using “actual” and “virtual” robot arms as a possible creative medium and extensions of design/gaming environment creating immersive atmospheres for “experiencing” design. This research questions the possibilities of creating an architectural/spatial atmosphere through digitally enhanced experiences. Different from some of the current experiments with augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR) and projection-mapping in architecture, Mixed Robotic Interface Г is not looking into “immersive” experience as a way to “blur” the boundaries of digital and physical—similar to virtual reality experience with headsets. Instead, Mixed Robotic Interface Г creates a recognizable gap between real and virtual to open up a creative space for the user/audience to be involved between these two mediums. Mixed Robotic Interface Г uses para-fictional storytelling as a way to engage the audience with the experience and to create continues atmospheric qualities.
