As we enter an age of renewably-powered, driverless automobiles, the question arises: what do we do with the estimated 1.5 billion cars in the world today?
Imagine a not-too-distant future where a new civilisation rises from our post-industrial debris. Over at Cockle Bay, mind-boggling electro-automotive super-bots have been sent to sow the seeds of a brighter, greener tomorrow.
Epic in scale, Robot SPACELand takes over Darling Harbour. Its centrepiece is a 16m tall mechatronic unit called Ecobot whose primary purpose is to save Earth from extinction and advance a sustainable existence. After assembling itself from crushed cars, Ecobot continues its endless duties crushing and processing old vehicles to extract precious metals and form the building blocks of a new society.
Under Ecobot’s leadership is a band of sentient robots busy repurposing recycled cars and industrial junk into Tree 1.0 to generate alternative landscapes of organic beauty from the wasteland.
The rugged all-terrain TerraScorp terraforms habitable havens. This construction bot remodels compromised environments and plants nutrient-rich seedlings to nurture new life.
Truth Seeker turns its eyes to the skies, raking the galaxies for intelligence that will help preserve our planet – and us.
On Evolution Island, worker bots labour ceaselessly to convert any remaining industrial waste into lush foliage and atmosphere-replenishing rainforest flora. Help them succeed in their mission to restore the Earth.
Enjoy the amazing fireworks display above Cockle Bay every Friday and Saturday night during Vivid Sydney, plus the Sunday of the long weekend.
