Meet BEATRIX, an extensible, portable entertainment system. It was built in-house by the Obra team using CAD software, CNC machines, and readily available materials. BEATRIX provides quality sound, LED lighting, wheels, and is battery-powered. With the goal of supporting street-performing, Obra collaborated with Sac Dance Lab to produce a series of free pop-up dance shows for pedestrian audiences in Sacramento. BEATRIX strives to activate public spaces, while demonstrating art and technology.
