  • began her creative career as a jeweler in arizona, USA in 2003, casting insects in gold or silver.
    however, bessanon’s work soon morphed into one more sculptural in nature as she hoped to appreciate the coloring of each bug
    by adding metallic parts, resulting in a collection of robotic bugs.

    by adding metallic parts, resulting in a collection of robotic bugs. bessanon first acquires dried, dead insects from suppliers on ebay, special collectors or entomologist websites.
    when ready to begin work on a piece, the artist re-humidifies the specimens in order to properly shape them.
    bessanon then repositions the legs and wings, fanning them in her intended arrangement. following the initial appendage setting,
    the artist pins the insect to a piece of styrofoam, allowing her to more easily add the cogs, gears, levers and steel mechanisms to the insect.
    after a period of two weeks, the intricate robotic bug sculpture is completed– the colors of the insect play off of the silver and gold of the gears,
    bringing together the two media preferred by the artist.

    The first AR game I played, Roboraid, was a simple AR shooting gallery. Robotic bugs came bursting through the walls of my room, and I shot back using an eye-aimed laser. While similar in many ways to some VR demos I’ve played in the past, Roboraid takes advantage of HoloLens' self-contained mobility and my real-world visibility, encouraging me to dodge projectiles by moving my body and demanding I constantly shift positions around the room to line up shots.

  • In the quest for the most capable robotic bug (which is a quest that many roboticists seem to be on, because robotic bugs are nifty), some of the most exciting designs are inspired by the dynamic, multi-modal ways in which insects are conquering the world. Combining skills like running with skills like jumping can make little robots much more efficient movers, allowing them to go farther on a charge as well as helping them surmount obstacles and rough terrain.

Solar Powered Robotic Bugs on the Attack!

The two-and-a-half year program to develop the robotic bugs is part of a larger program funded by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) that is exploring the use of mobile micro-robots for military reconnaissance and intelligence gathering. The basic idea is that soldiers could carry large numbers of these lightweight, mechanical scouts and use them to investigate the terrain ahead, detecting enemy troops, minefields and other hazards.
