The Robots are not taking over.They let us do things better.
The flexibility, repeatability and precision of Robotics have seen an explosion of creativity in the content world. As industrial robotics has filtered down into creative industries over the past decade, creators and artists are finding new and exciting ways to incorporate machines into the workflow.
Our current 6 Axis Robotic Arm was rescued from the Holden Factory in Adelaide, reconditioned and repurposed for use in Video work.
‘Peter Brock’ or ‘Brocky’ can move at a rate of up to 2 meters per second and has a precision of 0.03mm repeatability.
It can carry a high-speed camera for dynamic extreme slow motion, carry a conventional camera for silky high-end product pack shots, carry light from mind-blowing lighting and shadow play or even hold a product or model for complex details capture. The possibilities are, at the risk of sounding cliche, only limited by the imagination.
