Tweenbots – robots relying on human generosity

This is one of the lovelier things I’ve seen in a while: Tweenbots by Kacie Kinzer

Simple machines that go in a straight line are released into a cityscape with a flag that says “Help Me” and instructions on where they want to go. They rely on the generosity of strangers to get pointed to their destination.

“The journey the Tweenbots take each time they are released in the city becomes a story of people’s willingness to engage with a creature that mirrors human characteristics of vulnerability, of being lost, and of having intention without the means of achieving its goal alone.”
