Simone challenges KUKA robot to a “duel”
Together, we wondered what the “Queen of Sh*tty Robots” could do with one of the world’s most advanced robots. So, for 13 weeks Simone will invite the human-collaborative-safe robot LBR iiwa into her workshop (AKA, her living room) for a weekly live webseries.
She won’t be doing the things this robot was designed for – namely precise assembly and handling tasks. But she will be programming the LBR iiwa to automate things that are typically thought of as boring chores, like painting her nails or pouring a drink.
Simone will be supported by service and technical staff from KUKA's new US West Coast office in Fremont, CA.
Who will win the battle for the title of "mundane task master": robot or human?
