Robotic Crowdsourcing Experiment

I happened upon this page using stumbleupon.  Its actually a pretty neat experiment in crowdsourcing.  You can see the embedded video on page 2 of this article.

In New York City, we are very occupied with getting from one place to another. I wondered: could a human-like object traverse sidewalks and streets along with us, and in so doing, create a narrative about our relationship to space and our willingness to interact with what we find in it? More importantly, how could our actions be seen within a larger context of human connection that emerges from the complexity of the city itself? To answer these questions, I built robots.
