Woodbot Pilots

Before there was the Kinect, we met with Adopticum and immediately got excited about the potential of the 3D camera technology developed by Optronic. We were especially keen on its ability to measure the distance between the participant and the camera, which led to an application being submitted to Vinnova requesting support to explore how we can apply the technology. Vinnova happily accepted the project and partly funded it with one exception; we had to focus on the visuals because the technology was still in development. They did not want any of the current bugs at that time to devalue the 3D camera capabilities when showcased in a public installation.
