“Robocop has this robot side as well as human side. So we tried to make his interface like a fully functioning operating system. In terms of behavior and motion we tried to give the feeling that he is in control, and he is actually operating things on his POV. In terms of look, we didn’t want to go all futuristic and military not to step away from sense of human touch. Because this is not a suit, he is using this interface to interact anytime. This really embraced the emotional and informative moments besides action sequences. This is another reason that Robocop’s POV graphics are looking much more human and sophisticated compared to ED-209s and EM-208s POV.

The basic idea was imagining all the tools and gadgets are surrounding his head. If he wants to activate something it usually comes from sides. He can hide stuff to sides, bottom, top, and bring them in again. Or he can combine any of those with each other. This also helped us to guide viewers eyes to specific elements of story, by focusing on certain items, without loosing everything completely. We tried to show one action at a time, so it’s possible to track his actions and decisions.”
