Boris “the lion robot” and Leo “his android companion” are a pair of robots that came from the future because they need a cure for a virus that is affecting them. They believe that XXI century humans are already androids because they are always connected to machines. They want to download the feelings from the audience to cure themselves. They will do their best to make an emotional show so they can obtain pure human feelings.
BORIS was born in late 2012. I decided to make a robot who can perform with me. Me and my team spend several years testing, performing and improving. Here’s the result.
