a project from the MIT media lab – Personal Robots Group

This project is a collaboration with the world famous Stan Winston Studio. It combines the studio’s artistry and expertise in creating compelling animatronic characters with state of the art research in socially intelligent robots. We have christened this new character collaboration with a name that embodies art, science and invention. Hence, the name “Leonardo” — namesake of Leonardo DaVinci, the Renaissance scientist, inventor and artist.
