Shiverbot 2014

Shiverbot is a project that arose from conversations in CS1951C Designing Humanity Centered Robots. These discussions critiqued the commonly held notion that robots must be instruments of human agency. Shiverbot shivers when it is cold, not to provide utility for any user (beyond itself), or to act as thermometer, but as a response to the conditions in its own environment; as a manifestation of its own experience and "desires".
