This is incredible. Keanu Reeves was part of some pretty revolutionary camera work and special effects when he was starring in The Matrix movies, but it seems like he’s taking it all another step forward with his directorial debut, Man of Tai Chi. The groundbreaking robotically-controlled camera crane which he’s using to smoothly swoop in and around kung-fu fight scenes is the Bot & Dolly IRIS Robotic Motion Control system.
