Abstract

Merging among them the most important open questions of the century, in this paper, we outline and define a wide range of possible applications and technical forms of a low-energy dissipation in robotic biotechnological system conceived for intelligent and playful interactions. Moving from earlier works on Wearable and Modular Robotics, we describe how, by using modular robotics for creating wearable, it is possible to obtain an approximatively self-sustainable and flexible wearable system, consisting of freely inter-changeable input/output modules that through the use of solar, mechanical, and other sources of renewable energy are able to suit some specific tasks. Therefore, we here attempt to drive the attention on early prototypes to show the potentialities of such an approach, and focus on depicting possible application in the future of high-tech domain. Indeed, our artistic experiment is a clear example of how to scale down electronics to an eco-sustainable paradigm, which can still create playful and useful interactions for many application domains.
