<nettime-ann> ROBOEX07ICA 2007 / Festival for Cocktail Robotics


.
ROBOEXOTICA 2007 - Nov 22-25 - Museumsquartier Wien
Festival for Cocktail robotics since 1999!
(Presented by Shifz, monochrom and Bureau for Philosophy)

http://www.roboexotica.org

ROBOEXOTICA addresses the role of Cocktail Robotics as an index of the
integration of technological innovations into the human Lebenswelt. It
attempts to document the increasing occurrence of radical hedonism in
man-machine communication as well as being an enjoyable platform for
anyone interested in the related topics. The exhibit will show robotic
installations that mix cocktails, serve drinks,
hold cocktail conversations, light cigarettes and -- last but not least --
display "other achievements" in the sector of electronic cocktail culture.
The ninth iteration of the Annual Cocktail Robot Awards (ACRA) will honor
the best entries in the above categories, with extra emphasis on the
robot's charms and personality. (Award Ceremony Sun Nov 25)
