Bot Party is a humanist collective of artists and engineers, exploring technology through live comedic performance. bots_alive is an app and smartphone accessory that turns remote-control Hexbug Spiders into playful, autonomous & intelligent robots. During development, the robot's AI is built from modeling a human improviser as he teleoperates the robot through various likely scenarios.
