The Robot Taxonomy Project

The Robot Taxonomy Project

The Robot Taxonomy Project attempts to reconcile the differences between actual and imagined robotics and how they are represented. It is a project of the Robot Identification Institute, itself a subsidiary of the Uncanny Valley Authority.

The Robot Taxonomy Project debuted at 21 Grand in Oakland California in 2009 with interactive web terminals and chalkboards in the space to encourage additions to the taxonomy, kept as an online database.

The installation featured stylized, detailed CNC carvings of robot types in addition to the chalkboards and terminals.
