London: The Robots Have Landed

London: Fashion Week is not the only game in town!

London Design Festival takes place from the 18th to the 26th September and to launch this year's festival, the organisers have commissioned Clemens Weisshaar and Reed Kram to design an installation in Trafalgar Square. Supported and enabled by Audi, Outrace enables the public to take control of eight industrial robots on loan from Audi's manufacturing line in Ingolstadt which have been equipped with light heads which can write messages in light.

Visitors to the square, as well as a global audience, can send three dimensional light messages through the installation via from 16 - 23 September. The eight tentacles have been fitted with LED lights that can write messages in light which can be broadcast via the website.
