Real or fiction? How far is the robotic industry to produce something like this?

Gumdrop is a 27-year old Bulgarian robot-actress who has appeared in films with Fred Astaire and Charlie Chaplin, and now she’s auditioning for a new film with someone called TikTok.

Gumdrop is one of the most cute and endearing robots that have been creating in film. This is a short film from Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow director Kerry Conran is totally worthy of a feature length version, diving into the life of Grumdrop.

What are the features of this bot-actress that does not exist in our current robots yet?

  • Gumdrop is flexible in her body and mouth movements
  • Gumdrop has an intelligent communication
  • Gumdrop has a history as an individual robot (“when I was a litte robot”, she recalls)

Find the full article about the movie here.

The current robot that reminds me to Gumdrop is Tico, from Adele Robotics. Look at the following video:

Do you find more differences?

Adele Robotics has launched Fiona, a project for the robotics community to create an artificial mind.

This is another example of Cloud Robotics and reproducing the Apps economy for the robotics industry, the future of robotics.

Congratulations Adele!
