I was hired to work with the legendary MIT professor and A.I. leader, Rodney Brooks on his latest robotic creation, Baxter.
My job was to help introduce Baxter to the world by designing a package of materials to ease new owners into Baxter's assembly and operation. The centerpiece, a one page document to get Baxter up and running out of the box.
Among the most challenging task was designing and refinging his facial expressions. Baxter doesn't talk, so his "face" needs to convey everything from acknowledging your pressence to confusion about what is being asked of him.
All work was done on a tight deadline, with my efforts being instrumental in Baxter's successuful introduction to the workforce and the world.
