Advanced gaming robot inspires a film trilogy

Arts & Entertainment

Created by Reach Robotics, MekaMon is a consistently evolving entertainment platform

Spotted: Augmented reality platform MekaMon brings video game characters to life via its gaming robot. Created by Reach Robotics, MekaMon is a consistently evolving entertainment platform. As a personal robot with character, MekaMon’s fluid movements are so expressive that a film trilogy is being built around the robot.

In partnership with ThoughtWorks Arts and directed by Adrianne Wortzel, the first film, The Sentient Thespian, explores the emotions and potential of human-robot interaction.

For gamers, Mekamon presents a variety of options. Single-player augmented reality combat or multiplayer battles are available, and with MekaMotion, owners can create new animations for their robot.

As part of the global MekaPilot community, gamers can try out, rate and use other animations. Version two of the robot is now available to purchase. To get in on the action without committing to a robot, players can try MekaMon games for free via the app.
