Cacto (2016)

Steven M. Hernandez

At the end of each year, I design a small interactive robot.
This was the second, designed in 2016.
See other robots.

Technical Details:

  • Materials: Clay, electrical components
  • Features: White OLED eyes, capacitive touch cactus-spines.
  • Programming: Arduino (C++)

Cacto's shell was modelled from a red brown clay clay to promote a feeling of an ancient artifact.

A mess of wires, batteries and other electronics are hidden inside of Cacto to provide interactivity.
