The first idea for Steve started more than a year and a half before his final production, in the spring of 2013. Steve was going to be the host of an event, so he should be a Robot that feels at home on a stage and between people. That is why he is a little bigger than the average human and he can raise himself well above them. He lends his name from Steve McQueen.

Unfortunately I had to put the idea in the fridge for a while, but I kept telling everybody about him. Until the people of Brightfish asked me to build them a Robot, and I knew it was time for Steve to finally rise… Steve will become a Brighfish employee and in 2015 he will be spearheading several campaigns in movie theaters in Belgium.

Steve is created by Jan De Coster. Thanks to FablabXL and Robovision for assisting me during production.
