With winter rains, Bay Area pill bugs are out in force. Fortunately, they’re one of our most beloved “bugs.” Pill bugs. Doodle bugs. Potato bugs. Wood Shrimp. Whatever you call them, there’s something less creepy about these critters than other insects. Maybe it’s because they’re not insects at all.
Pill bugs are more closely related to shrimp and lobsters than crickets or butterflies. Their ancestors lived in the sea, but ancient pill bugs crawled out millions of years ago to carve a life for themselves on dry land.
You can see the evidence if you take a close look at them, so that’s exactly what we did for this episode of Deep Look, an ultra-high definition wildlife video series produced by KQED and PBS Digital Studios.

This is actually a really neat experience, especially if you have never been to New York City before such as myself. Make sure you bump up the quality, plug in those head phone and immerse yourself in the true sounds of NYC.
"The Verge’s Ryan Manning uses 3Dio’s Free Space microphones to take you on a crazy audio tour through Times Square, New York; a virtual barber shop; and a 360-degree Beck concert. This century-old technology of binaural audio — which hacks your brain to put you in a scene — is about to make a huge comeback with VR."
"We had a lot of requests for more footage/audio from the Binaural Video, so here you go: 30mins of raw vid. My glide cam broke at one point, so I went handheld for 6 mins. get over it."

The projection mapping "bioluminescent forest" is made by artists Friedrich van Schoor and Tarek Mawad.The artists spent six weeks in the forest fascinated by the silence and natural occurrences in nature, especially the phenomenon "bioluminescence". They personified the forest to accentuate the natural beauty by creating luring luminescent plants and glowing magical mushrooms that speaks volumes to any visitor that enters the minds of the artists through viewing "bioluminescent forest".More information on the project: www.bioluminescent-forest.com

Box explores the synthesis of real and digital space through projection-mapping on moving surfaces. The short film documents a live performance, captured entirely in camera.
Bot & Dolly produced this work to serve as both an artistic statement and technical demonstration. It is the culmination of multiple technologies, including large scale robotics, projection mapping, and software engineering. We believe this methodology has tremendous potential to radically transform theatrical presentations, and define new genres of expression.
