Brighton Digital Festival

Highlights from Brighton Digital Festival including digital archaeologists, artists who make and interact with robots, and a composer who uses a lap top as a musical instrument.

Gareth Mitchell and Bill Thompson travel to the south of England for the Brighton Digital Festival. In a special report, they talk to digital archaeologists about excavating the digital world 50 years from now. Gareth takes the remote controls of Carduino – a 3D-printed toy car hacked with an Arduino. Colin Grant talks to the innovative artist, Holly Herndon, who demonstrates how she composes using her lap top as a musical instrument. And, the Click team are invited to a near future world of caring robots that break down social barriers to embrace you.
