Just when you thought that Slider+ was as awesome as it can get with regards to sliders, comes the Wing.

The wind is a slider, that does not actually look like a slider, it looks more like an articulated robotic arm. The smooth sliding motion is not achieved via moving on rails like traditional slider, but rather via a set of gears that keep the “palm” of the robot leveled while the joint moves up and down.

Knowing Edelkrone, I would be surprised if this is the last of this product, and if I had to take a while guess it is a first unit in a complete moco system. We’ll see.

If my description was not clear enough here is a video from cinema5d showing this clever concept.

 

Sadly, this is still a concept product so no availability or price yet.

P.S. Edelkrone also kicked off a bunch of other cool devices: a pocket Slider+, a pocket Dolly and a few motion control systems that work with the Slider+.

    That is a great idea. Hopefully they can come up with an automated version that can run on timers.

    The only issue with automating this is that the rotation rate has to change based on the position to get a constant linear motion. If constant rotation is used, the linear motion will not be constant.

    Do you have a link to the pocket dolly?
