Myon - A Robot Hits the Stage, Episode 3

July 28, 2014

The humanoid robot Myon will be playing a leading role in "My Square Lady" at one of Berlin's opera houses, the Komische Oper. For Manfred Hild, the neurobotics specialist who built Myon, it's an experiment. Myon will have to respond to human emotions, express them and evoke them from human beings.


If all goes well, the 1.25-meter-tall robot will be appearing on stage at the Komische Oper later in the 2014/2015 season. Until then, he has a lot of work ahead of him. He'll have to learn the staging by himself. It won't be programmed into him. This time we went along to a rehearsal. The scientists want to test and improve capacities on stage that can't be tested in a laboratory, for instance, Myon's directional hearing. TOMORROW TODAY is following Myon's career in a series of reports.
