Take a moment to to look differently at robotics and consider how they can be used in unusual and unexpected ways

Soap Opera is an installation specifically meant to replicate a sense of the wonder and playful child-like intent that blowing bubbles instils in us. AATB ask us to consider whether using a robotic arm can still capture the pleasure and delight of blowing bubbles, as well as creating a new and imaginative use for an industrial robot.

Soap Opera has been created by Andrea Anner and Thibault Brevet, founders of the non-industrial robot practice AATB, which specialises in transforming industrial robots into playful installations.
