Robots and the performing arts share a long history. In fact, the word "Robot" was first coined in 1920 for a play by the Czech author Karel Capek named "Rossum's Universal Robots". The play featured six robots, but since nobody was able to build a talking Robot at that time, humans had to play them. Times have changed a lot and we don't need humans to disguise themselves as robots anymore. In this article by Nikolaus Gradwohl, author of Processing 2: Creative Coding Hotshot, we will do it the other way round and make some robots that play humans. Unfortunately, "Rossum's Universal Robots" would require nine humans and six robots, so we've chosen a scene that's simpler to perform. We are going to build a pair of robots who play the humans in the famous balcony scene from Romeo and Juliet.Read Romeo and Juliet in full
