Siggraph 2002
In August of 2002, we debued our Public Anemone installation at the Siggraph Emerging Technology Exhibit in Austin, TX.

This exhibit combined several core technologies:

- Integrated show controls that turn the terrarium into an intelligent stage.
- Interactive, autonomous robot performers with natural and expressive motion that combines techniques from animation and robot control.
- Real-time, stereo vision that tracks multiple features on multiple people.

Together, these elements create a physically interactive, ever changing, multi-sensory experience (including, sight, sound, touch, and even smell). The performance follows a storyline where certain elements occur each time, yet audience participation allows the experience to be different every time.
