Robots and Virtual Reality

Bot and Dolly is a multi-disciplinary robotics studio in San Francisco. They use architectural 3-D animation and modeling software like Maya, Rhino, and Grasshopper to connect physical space with digital space using robots, cameras, and projectors. Check out the mind blowing video below.

To me, this video shows that the space between digital and physical is far more permeable than we tend to think it is. Rather than being a one way path (i.e. rhino geometry to milling file to physical model), the potentials for tangled inter-relatability between the virtual real and the real real are ripe for exploration.
