The Economist - Robotic Arm
Robotics // Experiential Marketing // Interactive

Overview

Working in collaboration with Sense Experiential, The Economist wanted to awe commuters on their rush to work by serving them coffee made by a robot barista.

The overall footprint for the activation was limited, and it needed to be sufficiently robust and reliable to be toured across different train stations in London and setup overnight.

Coffee, sir?
Millimetric Precision

Our solution was to create a spectacle using a robot to carefully pour a Nespresso cup of coffee, and hand it to the consumer, all triggered in a truly 'touchless' fashion, via the wave of a hand.

Human vs AI

The activation raised awareness of robotics and AI, and the role that humans can, and will, play in our future.

Aeguana got involved in various elements beyond robotics, developing an interactive maze solver to demonstrate the pathways and approaches taken by an AI to solve a 'complex' problem, versus a humans approach.
