Freaky Robot Hides in Walls Only to Punch Through When Necessary

Hollywood leaves little to the imagination, especially when it comes to the future of the human race. Artificial intelligence, mechanical extraterrestrial creatures, and even man-made robots that eventually “grow” a brain and decide to go against their human creators.

Zwischenräume

And then, of course, there’s the Zwischenräume, and it’s here, right here, right now.

It’s technically an “art project,” so it’s not some prototype for a robot some company may have in the works for the future. But what it does is hide behind walls and pummel through so that it can check what’s on the other side. It sounds interesting, yet beyond creepy and freaky at the same time.

The following is how the artist describes the Zwischenräume:

The installation embeds a group of autonomous robots into the walls of a gallery. They punch holes through the walls to inspect what’s outside, signal each other, and conspire. As if the walls had ears and a hammer to pierce holes for their eyes to see.

I just think it’s a poetic way of describing a wall-punching robot that knows no boundaries.
