Tokyo Exhibition at Ginza Sony Park

Tokyo Exhibition at
Ginza Sony Park

In a rapidly transforming technological landscape, we are developing a vision for robotics that will enrich people’s lives and society.

When robots have evolved so far that we feel like they’re alive, then humans will begin to feel an affinity toward them.

Affinity in Autonomy:
Envisioning the relationship between humans and robotics.

"Affinity in Autonomy" exhibited at Milan Design Week 2019 will be
showcased at Ginza Sony Park.

The exhibition consists of various interactions to explore and experience a new relationship with robotics, such as sensory awareness experience with light and sound, a pendulum robotic moving independently and freely, spheres with its own distinct personality moving, all in response to your movement.

Interaction <01> Awakening

Interaction <01>Awakening

With heightened awareness of our senses we can awaken a new type of intelligence before us.
The entity embodied within the light and sound senses humans and can guide our path to a future where we interact with robots in unexpected and unimaginable ways.

Interaction <02> Accordance

Interaction <02>Accordance

Like humans, these spheres each have their own distinct personalities. They interlink, cooperate, and act in accordance with those around them. The unpredictable movements of these robots can spark the formation of communities.

Interaction <03> Autonomous

Interaction <03>Autonomous

The independence and free-will of robotics is portrayed by the random movements of a pendulum.
When the autonomous robotics detects us and casts an eye in our direction, we may question our natural feelings and response.

Interaction <04> Affiliation

Interaction <04>Affiliation

Through continual interaction with humans, robots will evolve both intellectually and emotionally.
By understanding this symbiotic relationship, we can imagine a future where robotics will have the appearance of being more alive.
