So, what happens when you mix reality and digital, creating a fusion of physical and virtual spaces?
The people at Bot & Dolly, a design and engineering studio have been doing that for a living. They’re the force behind some for the amazing effects we see in major cinematic releases. They recently produced the following amazing piece of cinematography called “Box“.
They use a combination of fully tracked robotic arms ( this is where their moving objects come into play) and projectors, utilizing the synchronized and accurate location information to do projection mapping of all the wonderful effects in the video!
