Poppy is an open-source modular platform based on simple and robust technology, which can be hacked by non-technicians, opening the way to new avenues for creation.
</p>
<p class="tc">
The platform is based on <a href="{{ site.baseurl }}/{{ page.lang }}/technologies">technological bricks</a> allowing the creation of novel robotic shapes or behaviours. It also includes examples of full robots like the <a href="{{ site.baseurl }}/{{ page.lang }}/robots/poppy-humanoid">Poppy Humanoid</a>, or the <a href="{{ site.baseurl }}/{{ page.lang }}/robots/poppy-ergo-jr">Ergo Jr</a>, which can directly be reused or modified for artistic purposes.

Robotics and dance have at least one subject in common: movement, its function being as effective as emotional. With the desire to "create a driving desire", the creative Comacina-Capsule artists explore this junction by working with designers of the robot <a href="{{ site.baseurl }}/{{ page.lang }}/robots/poppy-humanoid">Poppy Humanoid</a>.
