Don't feed the robots

It's good to see this kind of things happening right here, specially related to my research area. A Portuguese artist has just launched the first Zoo for autonomous robots in Alverca, Portugal.

Leonel Moura, who has been working with autonomous robots since 2003, has constructed "the first zoo for artificial life" filled with 45 different robots. Most of these robots are powered by solar energy. Check out the video to see the robots in action:

In addition to the robot zoo, this month Leonel Moura opened the first art gallery featuring art made exclusively by robot artists. The paintings are made randomly created by robots loaded with paint and left to roam across a canvas.
