Functional robots offer a study in simple interactions between user and object

South Korean based design studio Monocomplex has created a range of minature robots that toy with the kinetic principle for inspiration:

“The object applied with the mechanism induces simple behavior in a person. If the same movement is repeated or the same strength is given for a constant time, then desired results will come out.”

Each of the objects is intended as a study in simple interactions between user and object, with the turning motions providing the point-of-focus for the pencil sharpener, lamp and music box. The objects have a strong ‘kidult’ aesthetic and take advantage of the fact that since work life is non-stop thanks to mobile technology, people need to take more breaks from their screens to rejuvenate and play a little.
