If you’ve got an interest in robotics then you might want to checkout HERE BE DRAGONS first episode in its new series The Possible. Called Hello, Robot the episode has now launched on virtual reality (VR) platform Within.
Hello, Robot takes viewers inside the secure testing facility of Boston Dynamics which is working to create the most advanced robots in the world. A location that’s closed to the public, the video showcases some of the labs and the different projects being developed. “The dream is building machines that can go anywhere a person or animal can go, that’s how I see the future,” said Boston Dynamics CEO Marc Raibert. “We like to think we’re changing people’s ideas of what robots can do.”
The Possible is the first foray into 360-degree content by HERE BE DRAGONS’ own David Gelb – known for acclaimed documentary Jiro Dreams of Sushi, and Emmy-nominated Chef’s Table.
The series will be split into five-parts, taking viewers ‘inside today’s most fascinating scientific and technological breakthroughs in 360-degrees’ . It’ll visit numerous locales and meet with scientists tackling a range of scientific hurdles. The entire project has been developed in partnership between HERE BE DRAGONS, Within, GE, Mashable, and The Sloan Foundation.
