Another from the “Awesome Past Lives I Never Knew My Colleagues Had” Files: I just learned that Tarik Abdel-Gawad, with whom I’ve been collaborating on AR stuff, programmed & performed the amazing “Box” projection-mapping robot demo with Bot & Dolly before Google acquired that company. It’s now a few years old but no less stunning:
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.
