For this group project students were invited to consider what technology might look like if it were conceived in an urban Mexican context rather than the now-generic confines of Silicon Valley.

Separated into different teams, students were inspired by everyday objects to build hyper-local robots whose playful form and function reflect the context in which they were built. When synchronised with each other, the robots function as a musical band, playing ’La Sampuesana’, the first Cumbia song to be brought to Mexico.
