Mr. Robot Drone Guy Tries to Make Science Popular

 

Prof. Bae Ilhan: “I Want to Help the Public Understand Future Science Technology.”  

 

Latest YouTube Hit  

 

In October 2016, many Internet users found themselves laughing while watching the video featuring a “pineapple guy” dancing and chanting “PPAP.” The short music video entitled “Pen Pineapple Apple Pen” swept the world with its addictive melody and comical dancing moves. This fame naturally was followed by a series of parody spin-offs.

 

Among others, the science community now has a “robot drone guy,” played by Prof. Bae Ilhan of the Moon Soul Graduate School of Future Strategy at KAIST. With the title “Robot Drone Man,” this latest parody video introduces an “avatar robot drone”, a combination of an avatar, robot, and drone.

 

An avatar robot refers to a virtual body working as a human being. However, robots face considerable geographical limitations and unfavorable mobility as they can operate only on land.

 

Prof. Bae attached an avatar drone onto a drone to maximize the robot’s mobility, before creating a hilarious parody video with new ideas of the drone industry.

 

“The ideas about drone photography and delivery drones originate from overseas,” said Prof. Bae. “I made the video to spread the idea developed in Korea to place avatar robots on drones, through a cheerful and enjoyable manner.

 

“I could publicize ideas about the future in books and papers or through conferences, but it is hard to get the attention of the general public,” continued Prof. Bae. “I prefer shaping the future of science and technology and helping ordinary people better understand difficult scientific and technological knowledge by making comical videos.”

 

Prof. Bae decided to study science while working at a media company and covering cases on the state-of-the-art industry. He earned a doctoral degree for artificial intelligence robot technology at the University of Hawaii.
