TITAN: the robot singer

Titan the Robot is the stage name of any one of a number of human dancers who perform dressed in an android costume[1][2] created by Cyberstein Robots Ltd in 2004.[3]

The costume is approximately 2.2 metres (7′ 3″) tall and 47 kg (7.5 st)[1] and increases to 350 kg (55 st)[1] including the performer and onboard equipment. It was designed by Nik Fielding, who runs Cyberstein from Torquay, Devon, England.[2] Titan has performed at a variety of public and private events, from the Commonwealth Games and Alton Towers to bar Mitzvahs[1] and shopping centres.[4] Titan has appeared on Channel 4 television and BBC Children In Need.[3] When asked by The Times what skills potential performers would require, Nik Fielding replied « They’d need to be good at playing Xbox because that’s what it’s like in there. »[2]

In performance, Titan moves about freely in an open area and uses music and comedy to interact with spectators. Shows last for about 30 minutes and can be mixed with a walkabout.[4]
