Project Summary

RIT COLA has sponsored a stage to be built for a new play called Ai-Pollo; a futuristic take on the story of Oedipus. This stage is designed to function as the centerpiece of two separate settings within the play. The first setting functionally acts as a "portal" or door through which actors can walk. The second setting when the stage is rotated acts as a shrine or pedestal with functional wings. In addition, a baby doll with LED eyes that glow on command is required to sit on the pedestal at a given point in the play.

Team Vision for Problem Definition Phase

The initial steps involve scheduling plenty of meetings between various stakeholders of the play, and discussing any generic design ideas we might have as a starting point for the project. This is followed by researching various topics in order to get a better understanding of our options and what we plan to deliver. After more meetings with stakeholders, a decision is going to be made on the operation of the portal, wings, lights, and other individually controlled mechanisms required for the play. Finally, a detailed design plan for the stage is going to be made and agreed upon by stakeholders to begin construction during the next semester.

Project Goals and Key Deliverables

The goal of this project is to provide a reliable, working prototype that exceeds all functionality requirements from the director, and helps provide a memorable experience for the audience.

(To create a multi-functional mechanized stage props with wireless motion control)
