Midsummer Night’s Dream of Electronic Sheep

Robots Perform Shakespeare

At Texas A&M there was a production of a Midsummer Night’s Dream that used robot helicopters as fairies. From the videos linked to in the article above, its an interesting effect, although the robots did not have any lines. But they did interact with the actors and definitely added to the ambiance of the scene.

I’d say it was the best “casting” of robots that I’ve seen in a play thus far.
