Robinson is a box that plays Minecraft on its own, depending on its environnement. It behaves like a beacon that gathers datas such as humidity and temperature that have a knock-on effect on the game.
The idea would be to find diverse interesting climates (cold, warm, wet…?) and to leave Robinson there for a while. The you can come back, pick it up, plug it to a screen and see what happened! As the game is playing itself, the human is only a witness of what is being created inside the box.
Robinson is part of the Botcaves workshop that took place at ECAL with Matthew Plummer-Fernandez about the IIclouds research project.
