While we're on the subject of all things video...
We Make Money Not Art has taken a look at the Dokumat 500, an artwork that
"is a fully automatic documentary robot. The Robot consists of a modified tripod and a video camera. The tripod moves autonomously around and pans and tilts the camera. It switches the camera and a spotlight, mounted next to the camera independently on and off. So, the documentary videos are edited directly inside the camera and the robot supplies a complete finished end-product. All you have to do is switch on the device and insert a cassette."
