This work was finally shown at the  Brew House Gallery as part of Rossum’s “The Uncanny Valley” Robotic/Art show.

Consisting of a breakbeam sensor, 3 large relays, and  two 650 watt spotlights. The work was triggered by an IR proximity sensor. The random analog data from the Vibra tab sensor, which the cockroach should have actuated did not end up occuring.



  1. Where did you get the cockaroach?
