R2D2, Museum Docent? Some Art Spaces Are Now Using Robots to Give Locked-Down Visitors Virtual Tours of Their Exhibitions
The gallery is using an Ohmni Robot, developed by Silicon Valley tech company Ohmni Labs in 2017. The technology includes a 13-megabyte camera on a tilting neck that swivels, offering the operator a nearly 360-degree view of the environment. The gallery sends clients with appointments a link and password to log in and take control of the robot, which serves as the collector’s avatar—or “Avantar,” as they’ve taken to calling it.
