Something Wonderful: It’s Done With Robots


An amazing film from the ever astute davidthompson: who notes: A live performance featuring one human, several robots, two moving surfaces and a lot of nifty projection mapping.

[After the jump to hold the startling scale.]

"Box" explores the synthesis of real and digital space through projection-mapping on moving surfaces. The short film documents a live performance, captured entirely in camera. Bot & Dolly produced this work to serve as both an artistic statement and technical demonstration. It is the culmination of multiple technologies, including large scale robotics, projection mapping, and software engineering. We believe this methodology has tremendous potential to radically transform theatrical presentations, and define new genres of expression." Bot & Dolly | Box

Way cool! I could see this being applied to movies, where you could sit in the theater and have the screens completely surrounding you and actually end up inside the movie with a 360 degree view. Or video games -- OMG, my son would be in heaven!!

I wish I could see it on my ios7 or win7 device, but it does absolutely nothing on either one.

That was absolutely fabulous!!!!!!!!!!

There are so many possibilities in this my mind is shaking with excitement.

I wish the pioneers in computing could experience the magic of just this Web page, with the video, the comments area, the linkage capability, oh, just everything!! Think of the wonders of just this page alone, let alone all the other things that exist right now in the Internet and Computer technology.

Thank you, Gerard.
