Humanoid robots fascinate and scare at the same time. The InsideScience project funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG) at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) intends to initiate a dialog about humanoid robots between the public and science. Discussion will be based on films focusing on these research activities, which were produced under the project and disseminated via Web 2.0 formats. The current series on “Humanoid Robots” will be presented by InsideScience on Sunday, June 24, 17 hrs, at a cost-free premiere at the Schauburg cinema, Karlsruhe.
