Imagination London commissioned the design and animation of this robot's face for Ford's pavilion at the Bangkok Motor Show Thailand 2011.
After several tests, we decided to use Cinema 4D to create this piece. Firstly to do choreograph the robot's movements as a guide for the programmers of the machine, and second to animate the facial expressions using bones to control the muscles and C.O.F.F.E.E. to have a list of re-usable standard expressions.
The robot, which is one of the kind they use in assembly lines at Ford, was nicknamed Kouk.
