Chatbox Robot installation

    Please write a message, but who will answer you? Another visitor of the exhibition or our chatbox robot? Can you tell the difference? The installation consist of two chatbox stations placed in different exhibition spaces, the stations can communicate with each other or through a computer bot. Part of the ‘Die Roboter’, an exhibition on the relationship between man and machine, opened by Karl Bartos (ex-Kraftwerk) and Thorben Albrecht (State Secretary in the Federal Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs Germany).
    This project is made entirely in Max without java or javascript additives. Which was very hard especially with special characters and input by a keyboard. Max is probably not the easiest program to develop something like this, but in the end it is well done with lots of max scripting of comment boxes, regexp, colls, itoa and atoi objects.
