Stunning Live Visual Effects in Box


Wow. This is the most awesome thing I saw yesterday, even though I watched - and enjoyed - Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.. This short video entitled, "Box," packed a bigger punch in five minutes than Joss Whedon and ABC did in an hour.

Invoking the classic Arthur C. Clarke line, "Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic," the clever folks at Bot & Dolly appear to be stretching the frontiers of projection-mapping, merging it with moving surfaces, robotics, and software control. And, perhaps best of all, they employ it in the service of performance art.

The result is mesmerizing:
