    Robot School

    We are making robots with creative people, of all ages, all over the world, to show them the future of robot design is in their hands, not solely in the hands of engineers.


    If you are not certain that you can bear the full-time responsability over a robot, renting ons might be a solution for you. You can rent a robot to welcome people, present on stage, give POS information about your product or empty your reactor of depleted uranium.

    About Jan De Coster

    I am making physical interactive installations since 1999. I have worked as and art director and producer for many agencies like BBDO, TBWA and Boondoggle.

    Since 2012 my focus is on Robots and their place in society. I run my studio from my home in Mechelen, Belgium. Since 2013 I also hold a teaching position at Erasmus University College in Brussels.
