Robot SafariEU took place from 27 November - 1 December 2013 and featured a fantastic landscape inhabited by robots based on wild animals and plants.
It showed how nature can inspire innovative designs through 13 unique robots, many of which were on display to the British public for the first time. The event allowed you to trek through their unnatural habitats and watch as they swim, flap and crawl their way around, in a unique safari experience.
Roboticists from around Europe were on-hand to explain how these robots might help humans and increase our understanding of nature.
A number of robot-related workshops also took place at the Creative Camp including programming a robot that behaves like an animal, making your own biomimetic circuit or building a robotic animal and take part in our Robo Race.
The Science Museum’s Robot SafariEU, in partnership with EUNIC London (European Union National Institutes for Culture), celebrated some of the most exciting European biomimetic robots.
