A couple years ago, while on assignment, we were fortunate enough to meet Dr. Ashish D Deshpande, Assistant Professor of Mechanical Engineering at The University of Texas at Austin. We were photographing robots from his lab for a story in The Alcalde Magazine. ** SIDE NOTE: If you ever get the chance to hang out with engineering students for a day, take it! They will blow your mind.**
Fast forward to Summer 2015, and we get an email from Dr. Deshpande. He has a new robot and is wondering if we would like to photograph it. Ummm… heck yeah!
Harmony came to our studio for a day. We shot both stills and video of this amazing invention. We have plans for a longer video with an interview of Dr Deshpande worked in, but for now, please enjoy our short of this phenomenal robot.
