We put a robot in the Houses of Parliament to get the attention of MPs and give the opinions of young people the chance to be heard.

Vinspired are the nation's leading youth volunteering charity who believe that young people can change the world. They wanted a way to get the opinions of young people in front of the people who made decisions that affected them.

We created VoiceBot, a robot that was installed in Westminster and transcribed young people's messages onto paper for politicians and policy makers to view.

The physicality of a big orange robot in the vaulted chambers of Parliament was a beacon for politicians so that both user and viewer were engaged.

The photos were also pulled back from Flickr onto the website to form a permanent archive that can be searched and shared. Over 20,000 users took part, making the project a huge success, and winning a BIMA award for best Interactive Installation.
