Artificial curiosity tries to maximize learning progress. We apply this concept to a physical system. Our Katana robot arm curiously plays with wooden blocks, using vision, reaching, and grasping. It is intrinsically motivated to explore its world. As a by-product, it learns how to place blocks stably, and how to stack blocks.
