The 8 1/2 minute experience uses a wearable sensor glove to control the robot using the motion of the user's hand. Using this control, the user must navigate a simple array while they listen to a soundtrack.


This soundtrack takes them through several scenarios surrounding the stages of adaptation, which mirror how hard it becomes to control the robot - when you have reached a difficult scenario, the robot becomes difficult to control.

The user will experience frustration, anger, fear, and eventually a sense of self worth as they try to navigate through the course with the robot, showing what the immigration and adaptation process like.


This video shows snapshots into the experience.
