Apetechnology is an electro-mechanical art and sound collective operating out of Detroit’s New Center area. The core premise of the design of their electro-mechanical devices is to explore the intimate but uneasy relationship that humans have developed with their own creations. Check them out as they showcase three new roving robots inspired by Rudolph the Reindeer.
