Coke Is It
MAEM, 404, iDMAa, - selected
C3 is a hex-crawler robot, outfitted with a CMUcam and sensors, enabling it with the ability to search and find puddles of Coca Cola placed on the gallery floor. When C3 finds a puddle of coke, it sucks the beverage up through an electrical pump, and then sprays it across itself. After several feedings, the acidic nature of the coke eventually eats through the robots skin. Eventually this "digestive" process finds its way to the circuitry, causing it to break down. The performance concludes when the robot is consumed to the point where it has killed itself. Project Website -
