Rusty Squid, the groundbreaking robotics artists featured in the new David Tennant-narrated documentary How To Build A Robot, have released a new preview clip of the programme. Join David on Wednesday night to find out what happens when puppeteers, designers and engineers join forces to create a prototype robot, who exists to make an emotional connection with humans?

Watch the clip here:


Airing as part of Channel 4's Rise of the Robots season, this fascinating and warm-hearted look at the future of robotics that is unlike anything we've seen before. Many humans have a cultural fear of robots, but eccentric Canadian robot inventor and puppeteer David McGoran hopes to fix this by making a new kind of machine that moves like we do: a loveable robot that even people on the street will open up to. Adopting the same style used in movies by Disney and Pixar, McGoran designs a robot that anyone would believe and trust and even welcome into their lives. But the real test comes when the new robot is left on the streets of Bristol and programmed to find out more about humans. The robot films its own extraordinary adventure, as it tries to connect with us in a whole new way. Can the robot convince people it's real? Will people be brave enough to open up to it?

How To Build A Robot airs on Channel 4 on Wednesday 29th November at 10.35pm
