Robots Let You Visit Art Museum without a Crowd

Let’s say you love to go to museums and galleries and look at all of the art, but you hate the crowds and the noise. As usual, robots are the solution. Yes, one gallery now allows you to explore after hours, using robots. It’s like A Night at the Museum, except with robots.

The Tate Britain gallery in London will let you in virtually after closing time this week. This is all thanks to the installation of four webcam-fitted robots that can be controlled by visitors to the gallery’s website. It sure beats the crowds and the travel.

Each robot is walking around shining a spotlight on what you want to see, so it is also like playing a virtual Catwoman game. You just can’t steal anything. The robots will be online Wednesday 8/13 – 8/17 from 22:00 BST through 3:00 BST, though on Friday, 8/15, they’ll be running from 19:30 BST through 00:30 BST.
