RadBots are an NFT collection of conversational videobots created by leading playwrights, artists and screenwriters from India, Sri Lanka, the UK and Germany. This project gives interactive voice to characters from traditionally under-represented communities, both economically and in the tech-sector.
The RadBots project combines 2022’s most advanced artificial intelligence, authored screenplays and Dara.network’s async video-chat platform to bring Turing-test passing and fascinating characters to life on anyone’s phone.
Our first collection of 20 RadBots will be made available as NFTs at the India Art Fair in 2022. Ownership of each RadBot will be made available to a limited number of Edition buyers who will be the sole owners of each RadBot, with rights to interact with these incredible characters and to vote and submit proposals to the RADAO.
RadBots is also a radical experiment in modern collectivism and responsible crypto. 30% of NFT proceeds will be pooled in our Proof of Stake blockchain hosted RadBot DAO - the RADAO - whose charter is to fund the under-represented communities our AI-powered RadBots hope to serve.
The RADAO enables its members to submit and vote on worthwhile funding proposals. Membership into the RADAO includes the RadBot Creators, Edition Buyers and the RadBots themselves. Yes, the machines will have a say on what causes the money made from their sale is spent on.
For a limited time, we encourage everyone to interact with RadBots here. Just tap and then Message a RadBot then to install Dara on the web, iOS or Android. Then text or speak anything you'd like. Ask about their hopes and dreams for the future. Ask them about Covid. Ask them anything and we bet you'll be surprised, laugh and occasionally be frustrated and astounded by what they have to say.
