Do you ever wonder what happens to those faithful working industrial robots when they retire? Whether they are stored in a closet, used for new manufacturing cells or turned into art, every robot has a life after the assembly line. Bot & Dolly made an interesting, and now famous use of repurposed robotic arms that will leave you in awe of both the creative faculties of the mind and the incredible undiscovered power behind industrial robots. Reaching new parameters with recycled parts repurposed and remade, the now filmmaking robots, Iris and Scout, are the technology that made Bot & Dolly desirable in the eyes of Google’s robotics project. Acquired in 2013 by Google X, the story of two men and a creative vision for robotics will leave you in awe.
