A small project I completed at Real Visual for a client.
The brief was to create a small robotic character that would lead users around a virtual tour of a factory area.
As the factory produced materials that needed to be developed in a clean, bacteria free environment, health and hygiene was a major factor in the development of the tour.
With this in mind I decided to create the robot to have a very clean, polished, almost clinical appearance, reserving his character traits for the animation stage. The Guidebot was able to communicate and instruct users throughout the simulation with a combination of animation and visual projections that come from the glowing panel in his torso.
The character design was a very fast process having the whole thing created from concept to final in just 10 days and was a massive success with the client and for Real Visual for whom he has become something of a mascot.
