The device that turns you into a robot


The human robot relationship is pretty clear - they take orders from us.

But consider a future where we trust technology enough to physically move us about. This happens occasionally - in the air for example - but what about shoes which take you to your destination?

The Robots and Avatars exhibition runs until 27 May 2012 at FACT, Liverpool and tours Romania, Slovenia, France and then the Asia Pacific region from 2012 to 14.
