Among others, the group SPECS from the University Pompeu Fabra attended the Barcelona Robotics Meeting with an exhibition called “Toward Social Machines”. The exhibition showcased the sophisticated humanoid robot 5HW [iCub] in a “game play” demo that uses a biomimetic, brain-inspired approach to facilitate the realization of game like interactions between a social machine and humans, and adopts a mixed-reality interaction paradigm and a table-top tangible interface system called reactable which “per se” is a music instrument.
