About Us: The Robot Group is a non-profit 501(3c) corporation founded in the Spring of 1989 by a small group of Austin, TX artists and engineers who shared a common vision: utilizing technology to create and explore new mediums for art. The Robot Group has attracted a diverse audience of young and old, tech and non-tech alike. Works by the group and its members have been featured in:
The 2001 hit movie Spy Kids
Insomniac with Dave Attell
Nuts and Volts Magazine
First Night Austin celebration
Mansion OF Terror Haunted House
Austin Childrens Museum
The Group's activities have inspired articles in Newsweek, Mondo 2000, boing-boing and FringeWare Review. We have also made appearances on ABC's Good Morning America and an episode of Invention on the Discovery Channel. Other TV appearances include the debut episode of Art Brigade, and the German program Kulture Report.
