This unassuming vehicle is a fully adjustable rig that can mimic any car on the market. Any. Car.
The Mill, a VFX studio out of London, has joined fabricator JemFX to build the Blackbird – the rig that can imitate the motion and be skinned as any car. It has an adjustable chassis that can be extended or shortened to match a wheel base, and the suspension can be adjusted to various heights and how the rig handles. It’s loaded with a camera array with heavy duty stabilizers, and can be outfitted with motion capture equipment.
All it needs is a wheel swap, some length/height adjustments, and some CG and it can go from being a Chevy Spark to a Lamborghini Aventador.
It’s currently being shopped as a tool for advertising, but it has huge potential in movies and games.
