Deltu is a delta robot with a strong personality that interact with humans through two iPads.

Depending on his mood, it plays with you but if you make too much mistakes, Deltu just might get upset and decide to ignore you. Frustrated, Deltu will leave the game and take some selfies to post them on Instagram.

The relationship we have with robots/AI that have been created to enhance our performance, but have become a source of learning, is unique and exciting. The android’s place in society has not yet been defined and remains to be determined; for me it is the best source of inspiration.
