Robot Diaries

discover your digital career


Brought to you by Sensosis

Robot Diaries is an immersive storytelling VR experience set in a sci-fi Robot Care Centre. Participants get to explore the colourful world of robots inspired by the literature of Polish writer Stanislaw Lem. Within the Care Centre, robots are awaiting help from skilful engineers who would restore them to their former glory.
