I popped over to see Adil and Charlotte at Sidekick Studios on Tuesday and to check out the awesome power of the Voicebot.
The Voicebot is a project being developed by Sidekick and V, the youth volunteering organisation.
More importantly, it's an *actual* robot that allows young people to submit a message in 160 characters Twitter-stylee to the Voicebox website which is then written out by the robot. You can have a go here.
From October the aforementioned robot will be a central feature in the Houses of Parliament allowing young people to have their voice heard in the corridors of power.
In the spirit of community and sharing (and to prove your message is actually gets written) each message is photographed and submitted to a Flickr group.
I had a go and here's the result here's a link to the result (turns out it isn't *that* sharing – images are all rights reserved ).
And for the geeks in the house, here's a video of the Voicebot in action.
Great ideas; great work. Look forward to seeing where this project and the passion behind it ends up.
