Bot & Dolly is a self-described “small company with big robots.” Specifically, they’re an engineering and design firm that is attempting to use their “big robots” to revolutionize filmmaking. This recent project, known simply as “Box,” implements the 3D projection-mapping process to create a truly magical demonstration.
Projection Mapping is a rather old concept (dating back to the Haunted Mansion at Disneyland in the late 1960’s), but it has recently come into prominence with the development of specialized hardware and software. Almost any surface can be used to display the 3-dimensional images, so this technology has wide-ranging applications.
It will be exciting to see what this design firm produces next. Find more robotics at Bot & Dolly’s site.
