Doc Lounge Interactive: Robots in Residence

Nordisk Panorama is coming to Malmö! At this festival celebrating nordic short and documentary film, Doc Lounge will host some very special events AND create an interactive robot-made documentary! Doc Lounge will take the Blabdroid robots across Malmö to interview the city’s humans for a film on human-machine relationships. The super cute Blabdroids interview their subjects with questions such as 'What is your greatest fear?' and 'Who do you love the most?' with surprising results.
