A.UD IDEAS Lecture Series 2013-2014: Bot and Dolly – Movement and Precision



Tobias Kinnebrew, Director of Product Strategy, Bot & Dolly
Tuesday, February 4, 2014

Robotics is on the cusp of transforming practices and capabilities across a huge range of creative endeavors. This technological leap, driven in part by improvement in mechanical capabilities, is primarily the result of translating a formerly inaccessible and expert programming experience into a set of intuitive human interfaces bringing the power of robotics to non-roboticists. Equipped with a spectacularly diverse new tool, flexible but precise control over movement, creative leaders across the planet are challenging our notion of what is possible.

Tobias Kinnebrew is director of product strategy at Bot & Dolly, a design and engineering studio that specializes in automation, robotics, and filmmaking. Most recently, B&D’s robotically operated camera work can be seen in the feature filmGRAVITY. At the core of their technology is an integrated software/hardware platform that provides a set of intuitive interfaces that brings the power of working with robotics to non-roboticists. For this talk, Kinnebrew will discuss how robotics is on the cusp of transforming a broad range of creative platforms.

Bot and Dolly is a design and engineering studio that specializes in automation, robotics, and filmmaking. It’s our mission to advance motion control and automation as a creative medium, and build world-class tools that enable others to do the same. At the core of our technology is an integrated software/hardware platform that provides precise and expressive control of 6-axis industrial robots. We dream about where they’ll be used next.
