“It can’t be done.” This is what Alfonso Cuarón heard when speaking of his vision of weightlessness for the film Gravity. By leveraging our IRIS platform, including four robots and Bot & Dolly’s engineering team, we were able to make that impossible vision a reality.
'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. It is the culmination of multiple technologies, including large scale robotics, projection mapping, and software engineering.
Remember Reach is a robotically driven, interactive tribute to the fallen members of Noble Team, characters from the HALO videogame franchise. Based on the notion of remembrance, this long exposure light sculpture ran continuously for 20 days placing 118,422 points of light whenever a new user visited the official Halo Reach website.
Bot & Dolly is a design and engineering studio that specializes in automation, robotics, and filmmaking. Our tools have been used in feature films, national television ads, Las Vegas shows, and large-scale art installations. We dream about where they'll be used next.
