Last Wednesday morning, as guests of Waterloo entrepreneur Randall Howard, Howard and myself had the opportunity to meet Max Dean, the creator of the Robotic Chair. Dean's Robotic Chair is on display at the Kitchener-Waterloo Children's Museum.
Performance art or sculpture, the Robotic Chair really defies categorization. At first glance, it appears to be an ordinary chair sitting in the middle of a room. Then, suddenly, it simply falls apart. All the pieces come crashing to the floor with a deafening clatter. A short while later, the seat wakes up and begins looking for the rest of the pieces of the chair in an attempt to reassemble itself.
It's fascinating and fun to watch. Enjoy the video.
