Performing one of two main roles at documentary Wiki Jobs, by Jordi Llorens (Nikochan Films)


During the month of April, producer and director Jordi Llorens from Nikochan Films came to Pal Robotics to film a documentary about how Service Robots are born.


My colleague Victor Lopez and I were selected to conduct the program by explaining at different locations and situations how a Service Robot is born, what does it require to be useful and in which parts of the process were we involved.


A lovely experience that left us with many anecdotes (ask me if you wanna know!)
