Piaggio Fast Forward
ArtScienceConverged, the 24th Experiment of Le Laboratoire, opens on June 28 highlighting the frontier of human transportation, and World Frontiers Forum Pioneer and Harvard professor Jeffrey Schnapp's vision of a world where we coexist with robots in ways that complement and promote sustainable life on the planet. Cafe Gita, a robotic waiter, explores this future dream of transportation, starting an exhibition-long experiment to create a new low-carbon footprint catering service. Cafe Gita will throughout the exhibition bring air garnishes to whoever wishes to taste them.
