Using a variety of found footage, a new video attempts to shed some light on how machines view everything from people to cars. Dubbed Robot Readable World, the short was created by director, designer, and researcher Timo Arnall, who used YouTube videos ranging from crowd and facial tracking to traffic sign recognition. All of these are compiled into a five minute long video, set to the song "Cold Summer Landscape" by Blear Moon, that Arnall calls "an experiment in found machine-vision footage, exploring the aesthetics of the robot eye."
