At ISE we proudly present the ‘Honeybot’, an installation of 35 hexagon shaped kinetic screens. Why hexagons? Because this 6-sided form is the symbol for the 6 domains of the in-house expertise: Concept, Design, Technology, Factory, Content and Experience. To make the installation more Fisheye-ish we’ve added some extras to the concept: interactive led lights, motion design and projection mapping on rotating radars.

The Story of the Honeybot.

Last year we had a big summer bbq-party, for all our local friends and loyal clients. We were celebrating 10 years of Fisheye, 10 years of building custom solutions for cross-media enquiries. It was a moment to party, but also a moment to make new resolutions. The first resolution was simple. To take more time to research and elaborate on ideas, just for the fun of it. To be creative, just for ourselves.

Honeybot is a 3D info-graphic of our company. A visual way to show the different levels of our skills and expertise. Have a look at the Fisheye Facebook to see more photo’s of the making of.

Come and say hi at booth 9-b110.

A drone goes to a bar.

Yesterday we were invited to talk about drones at the Belgian Television show CafĂ© Corsari. Coptermotion, one of the companies in the Fisheye ecosystem is specialized in – read passionate about – aerial systems for professional use. We are continuously investigating in order to bring our skills to the level of perfection, to add more items to the – humungous – list off possibility’s that the use of drones entails.

So we loaded two drones to the studio – which is set-up in a bar in Antwerp. While the first drone was standing next to the presenter, the other one made a precision flight and landed softly on the table next to the other one.

Here is the footage of the drone during this broadcast. Take notice on the concentration of Michiel, our pilot, who was a little bit nervous for this. Not the flight, but the landing was quiet challenging.
