RoboScope

Thomas Sanchez

RoboScope is a transformable, tangible-interface developed for the CityScope platform. This interface allows for on-demand, three-dimensional, manipulation and visualization of urban form. Like other CityScope interfaces, RoboScope has been designed to facilitate user understanding of urban data and simulations in a visual and tangible format.

RoboScope is a Transformable, Tangible-Interface for the CityScope platform. This Interface allows for on-demand, three-dimensional, manipulation and visualization of urban form. The system is compressed of an array of 3D pixels organized in a grid that abstract the massing of urban environments. Each 3D pixel can be used to display information, via illumination, as well be manipulated through push /pull gestures to allow for a seamless interaction.

The transformable area or zone is compressed by an array of 3D pixels that are used to abstract the massing of urban environments. In addition, each 3D pixel can be used to display information via illumination as well be manipulated through push /pull gestures.   

Interaction

RoboScope allows users to interact and visualize volumetric transformations of an urban landscape. The modular system relies on a system array of motorized "3D-Pixels" that are used to voxelized urban massing. 

For each voxel or 3d pixel, there are currently two ways of interacting with it, either by pulling or pushing.
