A quick glance at cool tech our team designed, more than 15 Years ago, confirms that it kids love things that are well thought out in shows! Our CD on “Ed & Eppa in the Wild” was onto drones and AI inside the little PIP Spaceship, long before these concepts became popular in Sci-Fi.
This is one of the PROBES (6.5), which acted like drone cameras on the show, which enabled us to intercut with hand-held wildlife footage in episodes. Being a wildlife show compiled from stock footage, we sometimes had to come up with clever ways to incorporate any materials we could lay our hands on.
These were flight controls on the PIP Ship, designed for Ed (Our Alien), who had three fingers.
