MENSCHINE robot performance at press conference on ARD’s television theme week “Future of Work”

Once a year, German national television broadcast family ARD organizes and produces a themed week. After “Unlike You Think” (2014) and “Homeland” (2015), they chose “Future of Work” as their topic for 2016. From October 31st to November 5th, the ARD aired countless shows, documentaries, feature films and various accompanying productions revolving around the future of work. Some weeks before that, a press conference was organized to introduce the theme and some specific projects to the public. Our MENSCHINE robot was booked for this event to welcome all invitees and to make the future literally tangible.

Since we have been performing for the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy for many years now, our robot was very familiar with this topic and felt right at home. And it was great to see the press conference guests – reporters, photographers, TV directors, film actors – being impressed by and having fun with our MENSCHINE. Many thanks to Carolin Mann from Hessian Broadcasting for this wonderful enquiry.

If you are looking for a robot performance for your event, then this is the perfect place. Our repertoire includes the elegant MENSCHINE with 1 or 2 performers, ideal for topics like technology, artificial intelligence, future or digitalization; our unique steampunk robot MR-27, great for themed parties and – since he is a light guide – evening events; and last but not least our new mobile photo automat, the charming robotic photographer POLADROID that takes instant photos and literally spits them out. Just send us an email to with all your info and we will prepare an individual quote. Here at Metroccolis, the future is in the works.
