Leather covered unicorn robot by Riina O x Helen Leigh
Riina O is always interested in exciting collaborations, no matter how unexpected they might sound at first. This season one of the collaborations reaches out all the way into the robotics!
Together with the maker, educator and children´s author Helen Leigh was created a black leather robot unicorn with metal studs and an opalescent 3D printed horn, controlled by gestures with an elbow length microchipped leather glove.
Based on the unicorn robot model Helen had created earlier for Do It Kits, our Rob (short for Roberta) got a make-over in hand-stitched black leather with metal studs and an elegant microchipped control glove.
"As a leather glove designer I feel that covering a robot with hand-stitched leather adds a certain humane aspect to it”.
