During the previous edition we welcomed, to the Rimini Expo Centre, artificial intelligence, advanced robotics, virtual reality and the future mobility. For the first time in Italy, Gravity, the human flight system that brings into reality the technologies of superhero blockbusters, was presented with a practical demonstration.

The public of WMF had the opportunity to meet iCub, Sophia the humanoid and Spot the robot dog. In addiction to that, the team of Emilia 4 introduced the four-seater car supported only by solar energy.

More about the previous edition

iCub

iCub

The iCub humanoid robot was presented by IIT on the Mainstage stage during WMF 2022. iCub is a remote controllable avatar robot. Man has the ability to transfer the motion on the machine, which at the same time returns the environmental perceptions. Similar technologies will spread in health, and work, but also to operate in disaster situations protecting the lives of rescuers

Gravity

Gravity

Thanks to a spectacular performance in the Pool Stage, the audience of WMF had the chance to see - for the first time in Italy - the Gravity Flyng Show. Alex Wilson wore his Jet Suit assuming the features of a cyborg. He took flight balancing with the weight of the body and the movements of the limbs, offering us a show from the imaginary superhero. 

Sophia

Sophia

The robot Sophia is the world's most advanced humanoid. As a guest at the WMF 2022, she interacted with Cosmano Lombardo on the Mainstage talking about new developments in robot-human relations. Sophia demonstrated excellent comprehension, analysis, and communication skills. For two days, she was also in the exhibition area to meet with the public.

VR Cinema

VR Cinema

At WMF 2022 visitors were able to wear VR headsets provided by Rai Cinema to bring the general public closer to the new horizon of audiovisual entertainment. During the three-day event, it was possible to discover the new potential of the film industry resulting from the added value of virtual reality

SPOT

SPOT

Boston Dynamics' robot dog SPOT was a guest at the Festival, where it demonstrated its movement and interaction skills. It is a quadruped robot that can move with ease over rough terrain. Thanks to its features, SPOT overcomes the limitations of rovers and tracked vehicles that would have difficulty tackling obstacles on the ground level.

Emilia 4

Emilia 4

In the exhibition area of the WMF 2022, it was possible to see the solar-powered vehicle Emilia 4, developed by the University of Bologna. This car was created with the aim of demonstrating a different model of mobility, but also for experimental purposes and to participate in sports competitions.

Teotronico and Robidone

Teotronico and Robidone

Inside the WMF 2022 exhibition area, Teotronico, the pianist robot, and Robidone, the environmentally-conscious robot, amused the Festival audience with live music and entertainment. They are both made using recycled/upcycled materials.

Bomb Disposal Squad Robot

Bomb Disposal Squad Robot

The Italian State Police with its Bomb Disposal Squad showed its remotely controllable tracked robot to the public. Equipped with a camera and a hydraulic pump, it can move over difficult terrain to detect and defuse explosive devices. It is used in high-risk operations allowing police officers to operate safely.

One Love Machine

One Love Machine

The One Love Machine band, consisting of robots made exclusively from recycled metal materials, performed on the WMF 2022 Pool Stage. The focus on sustainability and environmental protection resulted in a captivating show that surprised and entertained the audience.
