The robot installation Tickle Salon (2002) provides a space arranged for stroking sessions. The
suspended robot uses a "feeler" to probe the body on the bed. It carries out sensitive movements over
the surface of the skin, endeavouring to offer variety, unpredictability and flexibility.
has been awarded with a first prize in 2002 at LIFE 5.0, an international
