Event on the Festival Map

Dryver is a social and philanthropic robot that drives around the site of the Polytech Festival to provide people with fresh drinking water. The robot uses condensation techniques to produce water from the air. In order to function properly, the robot needs some assistance from the audience: you have to charge its batteries by turning a special handle on the side of its body. Besides that, the robot can talk a little and interact. It is equipped with a speech recognition device.

The project of the Hamburg-based Ronnenberg Creative Technology studio demonstrates an alternative reality where robots are integrated into our daily lives. Dryver was designed for London Design Festival in 2017. It also visited the Victoria and Albert Museum and the Science Museum of London.
