Event & Festival
Cooler Lumpur Sdn Bhd
This year, TBWA was once again invited as Festival Partner for the Cooler Lumpur Festival, an ideas festival with thinkers, makers, poets, writes, designers and more. This year's theme was NOTES FROM THE FUTURE. We were asked to help make the festival feel big, and allow visitors to interact, as well as take a piece of the festival home.
We created T.O.B.I. or TBWA's Own Bot Implementation, a chat-bot disguised as a robot, that travelled from the future to bring news of what happens in Malaysia. T.O.B.I. gave festival goers a chance to 'converse' and interact.
T.O.B.I. uses Google's Speech Recognition API, Python, PHP, Web sockets, and also has a 10.5inch monitor and a microphone. T.O.B.I. was built using wood, discarded wires, a motorcycle engine, and parts from a used washing machine.
