Audrick Fausta has always loved to dance. As a child he took lessons in funk, salsa, and break dancing. Audrick also has a fascination with robots, growing froalm early exposure via Sci-Fi movies. He eventually bought some robotics kits and began to focus his studies in this area. After going through the very hard experience of being expelled from school, Audrick returned to his home in Guadeloupe. There he began to bring his two passions together and combine robotics and dance into entertaining videos.

He returned to France, where he joined a robotics club and built his own robot dancer, Drikybot.

That’s when Audrick was noticed by Aldebaran Robotics, creators of the widely loved NAO robot. Audrick now works for Adebaran as a mechantronics engineer and continues to mix dancing with robotics in his free time.
