Robots Are Taking Over The Entertainment World!
There are numerous robotic expos held around the world throughout the year, and the most widespread of which - National Robotics Week 2015 - is due to hit off in all 50 American states from the 4th April! But robots are no longer just limited to high-tech expos where tech enthusiasts show-off their designs, they are also taking over the entertainment world appearing in blockbuster films and at every kind of event: corporate events, trade shows, exhibitions, night clubs, festivals and roaming events, you name it there is a robot for it! From actors dressed up as robots – with varying degrees of technicality – to real robots that have been programmed for our amusement, event planners can look forward to a vast choice of robotic acts. At Scarlett Entertainment we have an impressive roster of robots waiting for your approval – here are a few of our best…
One of our most famous robots, Titan is not shy of a bit of publicity having appeared on Big Brother, Daybreak, Gadget Show and the UK premier of iRobot and Real Steal to name only a few appearances! Utilised by event management companies around the world to add something a little extra special to corporate parties, shopping malls, festivals, exhibitions and trade shows, Titan is an entertainment concept unlike any other. Titan can be programmed to talk to audiences in any language and speaks via pre-recorded sound samples inspired by current film and TV phrases. The ultimate brand experience tool, he can also display company branding. Standing at 8ft tall he quite literally is one of the biggest entertainer on the planet!
A smaller alternative to Titan – standing just over 5ft tall – it is possibly the world’s friendliest robot, Oscar! Utterly unique in that he can interact with guests spontaneously - talk to them about the event, compliment them on their attire, respond to their reactions and much more - he is a favourite for corporate events, trade shows and conferences. Opening the dialogue between you and your client, Oscar can also play music and run presentations, and be branded with a company logo, as well as hand out promotional materials in the form of samples, flyers and coupons. A unique little robot with a wealth of personality, he is able to capture and hold the attention of any audience and bring a smile to their faces.
Formed in the wake of hit TV show ‘Robot Wars’ this live robotics show recreates the thrill of seeing robots go head to head in the ultimate battle and brings it to the masses. One of the UK’s largest and most successful robotics event organisers, they pride themselves on delivering an action packed show on all scales. Whether a large corporate event or a mini demonstration for an exhibition stand, their shows won’t fail to draw huge crowds. They can also organise corporate team building exercises where each team is given a radio controlled robot kit with which they have to build their robot in a set amount of time! Teams are also set additional tasks and challenges before the big battle. Completely versatile this robotic show is a really unique and exciting way to enthuse and engage potential clients and delegates.
