2016 INNO-vation Disruptive Challenger
Recently, live performances utilizing robots such as drones and small humanoids have been increasing. However, although they can move in sync with a person, there is almost no real contact, and the robot itself is only a monotonous movement ( in movements and gestures), and it is inferior to the "skill" possessed by a person. In this project, we will develop a spherical LED display with a diameter of 1m or more, which can be lifted and has the "skill" of expressing unrealistic movements by illusion. Using a large number of moving spherical LED displays, prototypes will be conducted with the aim of realizing an effect that allows you to enjoy the unreal world with the naked eye.
