Any idea is only limited by the scope of your ambition and when you're THIS ambitious get interesting. Using code, autonomous robots and a ton of snow to create an alpine masterpiece to bring the world closer to the live action at the Alpine Ski Championships, Designers and film makers Unit 9 programmed a battalion of autonomous robots to craft fan messages in the snow. The result was an alpine artwork masterpiece – the size of 16 soccer fields.
“We programmed the robots using algorithms made for self-driving cars – with some special additions. For the really tight turns the robot’s auger pivots automatically, reducing the surface area in the snow and maintaining a precise drawing.” said Dimitris Doukas, Technical Director
