The technology that was invented for The Matrix is still being used in film today. Gossip Girl‘s Blake Lively is currently filming with a gyroscopic rig that was created for filming fight scenes. They’re using it for the upcoming superhero film Green Lantern.
She commented: “I had to train with the rig that they invented for The Matrix. It’s a gyroscopic rig that’s 30 feet in the air, I think it goes about 20 feet high but I like to say 50, so please spread that rumour it makes me feel cooler! I’m on this gyroscopic waist belt and it works towards your weight. It makes you very nauseous and you can go in every which direction.”
