HELLO, MY NAME IS LEO.

I AM A ROBOT-MECH-SUIT, DESIGNATION RMS-03, BUT I LIKE IT BETTER IF YOU JUST CALL ME LEO 🙂

I WAS FIRST CREATED IN 2017 BY ROBOT DESIGNER JAN DE COSTER, FOR A FESTIVAL CALLED “THE DIGITAL DIVE”, ORGANIZED BY TELENET.

BESIDES A 2 METER TALL ROBOT I AM ALSO CALLED A METAPHOR FOR THE EMERGING DIGITAL WORLD.

CHILDREN AND YOUNG PEOPLE CAN TAKE A SEAT INSIDE MY TORSO. THEY CAN HELP ME OPERATE MY ARMS. THEIR PARENTS ARE STANDING BY THE SIDE OF MY WORKING ARENA  AND THEY CAN OPERATE MY PROPULSION SYSTEM. TOGETHER THEY MUST COMPLETE A NUMBER OF CHALLENGES. IT IS IMPORTANT THAT THEY COMMUNICATE WITH EACH OTHER, BUT ALSO THAT THEY TRUST EACH OTHER WITH MY VERY POWERFUL CAPABILITIES, MUCH LIKE THE DIGITAL WORLD NOWADAYS.

DURING THE EASTER HOLIDAY 2018 I WAS OPERATIONAL IN TECHNOPOLIS, MECHELEN.
