The tweenbot adorableness

Here’s an experiment done by a student at my non-alma mater alma mater, NYU. She built a robot that could only move forward and decided to see if strangers would help it circumvent obstacles to get from one corner of Washington Square Park to the other, presumably without buying drugs. It’s very cute. I do think that doing this multiple times with a smiling robot and an expressionless one is the better experiment, however.
