Robigami

Robigami is a series of workshops for children aged 10 to 14 that introduces simple origami techniques and programming basics using the Arduino platform. Robigami offers a new electronic take on the art of folding paper, inspired by the shifting, interactive structures of The Edge of Chaos, a work by the Interactive Architecture Lab and Soft Robotic Matter Group.

Create your own origami robots and see how they react to light, touch, and other creatures. Dream up a world completely different from our own, where dragons are scaredy-cats, plants have taken over for the sun, and cellulose and electricity have replaced water and chlorophyll.

These workshops were designed by Children from Namur, Belgium, with support from the Kikk festival team. The tutorial for reproducing the workshops will be available on this page in early April.
