Virtual Reality Ballett in 360 Grad: KUKA Roboter auf der Bühne des Staatstheaters Augsburg

Mensch und Maschine tanzen gemeinsam auf einer virtuellen Ballett-Bühne: Ein KUKA Industrieroboter ist einer der Hauptdarsteller dieses ungewöhnlichen Stückes des Staatstheaters Augsburg. Die 360-Grad-Inszenierung verfolgen die Zuschauer mittels Virtual Reality Brille von zuhause aus.

Normalerweise kommt der KR IONTEC des Augsburger Automatisierungsspezialisten in der industriellen Produktion für Aufgaben wie Schweißen, Palettieren oder Montieren zum Einsatz. Doch als Leihgabe für das Staatstheater Augsburg tritt der Roboter diesmal auf einer Theaterbühne mit 17 Tänzerinnen und Tänzern in Interaktion. Der Fokus der Inszenierung liegt auf dem Thema Mensch-Maschine-Interaktion, technische Programmierung steht dabei menschlichem Bewusstsein gegenüber. 

Die Premiere ist am 10. September 2021, ab diesem Tag wird „kinesphere“ bestellbar sein. Das Stück ist als innovative Ballett-Erfahrung Teil der Virtual-Reality-Inszenierungen des Staatstheaters Augsburg. Die VR-Brillen werden deutschlandweit zum Publikum nach Hause geliefert. Die Zuschauerinnen und Zuschauer können vom heimischen Sofa aus in die 360-Grad-Aufführung eintauchen.

Technologie und Kunst verbinden

Es ist nicht das erste Mal, dass KUKA Industrieroboter außerhalb von Produktionshallen in der Kulturszene zum Einsatz kommen. So verbindet das Ars Electronica Festival im österreichischen Linz die Themenfelder Kunst, Technologie und Gesellschaft. Dabei zeigte unter anderem die Ausstellung „Kreative Robotik“ – eine Kooperation mit KUKA – die Industrieroboter abseits der Fabrikhallen und beschäftigte sich mit ihnen als Werkzeug kreativen Ausdrucks.

2019 tanzte der Choreograph und Tänzer Huang Yi während eines Festivals in Düsseldorf mit einem KR CYBERTECH. Und im Jüdischen Museum in Berlin beschrieb ein KUKA Roboter im Rahmen einer Kunstinstallation mit Schreibfeder und Tinte in der Geschwindigkeit menschlicher Handschrift eine rund 80 Meter lange Papierrolle mit hebräischen Buchstaben.

GinoBot by Engino – Base model with Gripper

Today I built the base model with a gripper and sent my feedback to the developers. It’s already really great product but there are always things to tweak or make better. Do not miss to support it on Kickstarter!

The Many Uses of Drone Videography For Event Marketing

This article was written by Anthony Jamison, a representative at Drones Services Phoenix. Anthony Jamison is the head of the Outreach Department of Drone Services Phoenix, Arizona’s premier aerial photography and videography company

There is no question about the impact unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) or aerial drones are making across industries these days.

Whether you’re a general contractor, a miner, a roofer, farmer, or a filmmaker, you will surely find suitable uses for an aerial drone, which can reach places and spaces you never imagined would be accessible a decade or so ago.

And today’s drones are not just about physically reaching hard-to-access spots. The fact that most, if not all of them are fitted with high-definition cameras also makes them capable of taking stunning photographs and videos while in flight.

The beauty of aerial drone videography also makes UAVs perfect for marketing activities, specifically event marketing.

If you’re part of a corporate marketing team and you’re organizing a music festival, a trade show, or any event, you might want to make good use of drones in the following ways:

Finding The Perfect Location

You need an open-air venue for your event, and you have already set your sights on a piece of land a few miles from the city.

The place may look good on the ground, but you want a complete idea of what it can offer and what you can do to the area for the event.

The solution? Get a drone in the air and shoot photos and videos of the whole property. With aerial photos and videos on hand, you can make a full assessment of the venue’s event-worthiness and start your planning for the event itself.

Billboards In The Sky

Billboards have always been a staple in marketing and advertising, and they still work, especially those huge ones that nobody can ever miss.

However, you can take things a step further by using flying billboards to market your event. Get a couple of drones, attach banners or tarpaulins to them, and have them fly over certain areas where your billboards in the sky can get the most eyes on them.

Enhanced Security

Your event can always use more security, and drones are more than capable of providing that.

With drones flying overhead during an event, you and your team can easily spot disturbances and possible trouble areas and alert security personnel to them right away.

Live Streaming

Event marketers can use live streaming with drones not only to hype up an event before it takes place but also broadcast the whole thing live to a massive audience while it’s unfolding.

Live streaming drone videos of the venue and the various preparations can help create buzz for the event itself and make people look forward to being there. Your brand’s followers would love to see behind-the-scenes footage of members of your team doing whatever they can to help make the event a success.

Once the event is taking place, a drone with live streaming capabilities can give the people who can’t make it to the venue a chance to see the goings-on while they are going on, making them feel like they’re there with you.

Creating Videos For Social Media

If live-streaming is not possible, you can always have your drone shoot all the necessary shots just the same, then create a video that you can post on all your social media channels.

As much as possible, post your drone videos for your event on YouTube and Facebook. After all, the former is the world’s top video streaming channel, while the latter has close to three billion active users worldwide.

While you’re at it, post your drone videos on your company website, too, since they can also help attract more traffic.

Giving Sponsors Due Credit

More often than not, major events are made possible with the help of corporate and individual sponsors.

You can show your appreciation for their involvement in your event by playing all over the venue videos shot by your drones featuring sponsors’ banners, signage, booths, or any indicator of the help they extended to you.

Celebratory Drone Light Shows

If your budget allows it, putting up a drone light show can serve as a high point for the event itself.

Unlike expensive fireworks, drone light shows don’t disperse toxic pollutants into the air, litter the venue with spent casings, and, more importantly, don’t scare birds, wildlife, and pets to death.

The creative possibilities are also endless, as drones can be used to create every imaginable pattern and shape in every possible color hundreds of feet in the air.

The crowd at your event and the people watching the live stream will indeed find themselves immensely entertained if you close the proceedings with a drone light show.

There are many other possible uses of drones for your event marketing efforts, but the ones listed above should be a good enough place to start.

You can always get a drone or two yourself to use in event marketing, but keep in mind that operating a drone requires a license.

If having your own drone is out of the question, you can always opt to partner with a drone services provider who has the license and the expertise to fly drones safely.

New MAKEBLOCK mBot2 educational robot can even be controlled by facial expressions

The mBot2 programming robot replaces the globally successful mBot1 after 8 years and inspires with cutting-edge sensor technology, new motors and a brand-new AI control board in a familiar design. For kids, teachers and tinkerers who want to learn more about computer science, STEM, IoT, AI and block-based coding while playing.

Ubstadt-Weiher, 29.04.2021 – Over the past eight years, MAKEBLOCK’s educational robot mBot has not only playfully taught millions of children, students, teachers and budding programmers worldwide about complex STEM (mathematics, computer science, natural science, technology) subjects, but also put a smile on their faces after completing successful missions. And the success story continues with the new mBot2: under the carefully modified shell, which is now made of robust aluminum, is packed concentrated state-of-the-art technology that enables countless new programming and application possibilities.

The most striking feature at first glance is the next-generation ultrasonic sensors, which look at you in brilliant blue. Who can resist that seductive look? But the blue „eyes“ are not just for precise distance measurement, they also convey emotion with the help of controllable ambient lighting. The mBot2 is virtually looking for eye contact with the little programmers, because the AI image recognition allows, for example, the speed to be controlled via facial expression.

Rotrics DexArm setup and first drawing

In this video you can see, only slightly accelerated, how quickly the Rotrics DexArm robot arm can be connected, set up and put into operation. For a first test, I let the robot arm draw my RobotsBlog logo.

Beforehand, I installed the latest firmware and software, as well as got to grips with the TouchPanel and tested its function. If you factor out this time, it takes no more than five minutes from unpacking to the first use of the robot arm.

If one forgoes the connection to the computer or the use of one’s own logo for testing purposes, the robot arm can be set up completely via the touch panel and tried out directly. This way, one could start even faster with the Rotrics DexArm and does not even need a computer.
