In 2010 I was approached by Bot 'N' Dolly, a video production company based in San Francisco specializing in using industrial robotic
arms and other kinematic high-tech to produce videos. They wanted to outfit a Chevy Sonic with a variety of robotic devices to enable
a graffiti artist, Jeff Soto
, to paint a huge art piece on a wall in Oakland using the car. The
piece was part of the Chevy 'Let's Do This' campaign for the Sonic.
The car was to be outfitted with a paint sprayer, a robotic paintball cannon and a small industrial robotic arm for detail work. My task
was to design and build a remotely aimable, pneumatically fired multi-barrel robotic paint cannon. With the help of
Justin Gray of Graywrx Fabrication and the talented folks at
Bot&Dolly we gutted and outfitted the Chevy Sonic with robots and shot an amazing short film.
