Kinect-carrying drone automatically builds 3D maps of rooms
A Kinect equipped helicopter drone flies around autonomously building a 3D Map of any room. Story from WIRED here.
Sorry… Personal pet peeve, but I gotta say it. You lighting designers that use moving fixtures…. you need to work it into your budget to change gobos. I am tired of seeing the same patterns (and knowing their names). The same can be said for Projection designers, but to tell you the truth I barely ever see the same stuff being used. This is largely due to the fact that content is easier and sometimes cheaper to make. Not everyone has a dichroic/acid etching facility to make gobs, so I’ll give you that. Still, try investing in your own stock of custom gobos just like a projection designer keeps their own library of content. End of rant… Thank you.
