Abstract

Bot & Dolly is a design and engineering studio that specializes in automation, robotics, and filmmaking. It is our mission to advance technology as a creative medium, and build world-class tools that put robotics directly in the hands of creators. Our software and hardware platform enables simple, natural, and intuitive control over robotic automation as an integral tool in the creative and development process from rapid prototyping to production. Creating a toolset that allows motion for industrial robots to be designed with a high degree of temporal resolution, not just spatial resolution, broadens the potential for creative applications in robotics. To date our software platform has driven innovative applications of robotics across the media industry, including feature films, national television ads, Las Vegas shows, and large-scale art installations.
