Robotic helping hands are among the highlights of UCLA Architecture and Urban Design’s new Hercules Campus in Playa Vista, Calif., where the neighbors include YouTube and Earthbound Media Group. Several mechanical friends are being used by the AUD faculty in the facility’s Advanced Technologies Lab to conduct research on the next generation of technology integration in architecture. Oh, and they also dance to the rhythm of music, as this one is doing, after being programmed by AUD’s partner Bot & Dolly.
