A breakthrough towards real holograms, a kinetic immersive space that uses biodata, an installation that turns blowing into glowing, and more awesome stuff in a yet another issue of Liked by Immersives, a weekly bulletin coming to you every Wednesday from your ocean-spanning Immersive team. Please enjoy.
ProjectPrincess Leia Project What it is Possibly, a breakthrough towards real holograms. Why we like it We are one step closer to the Star Wars-like holograms. At least the name of the research at the Brigham Young University subtly nods at it. However, since they are serious scientists, they prefer to use the term “volumetric images”: 3D images that float in air, that you can walk all around and see from every angle. With the help of lasers and cellulose, they were able to create images that look 3D for human eyes. We’ll be monitoring this research group as we're dying to get our hands on this tech.
ProjectGlow Vibe by RiftTime What it is An installation that turns blowing into glowing. Why we like it This is a simple and entertaining installation that poetically turns one activity into another. Nothing fancy, but quite sweet and nice to interact with.
ProjectAtlanta Hawks Pre-Game Court Projection What it is A new show genre. Why we like it It’s not the project itself, but the genre that we overlooked in our bulletin. Pre-game projection shows is a great new genre that ticks all our boxes. It’s real projection mapping, with mind-bending optical illusions. It’s born to be wow: the main goal is to warm up the audience before the game. And it integrates interactivity, additional show tech like projection curtains, works on more many surfaces, and much, much more. This is why we definitely like it.
ProjectEmbodied Dimension by Dimension Plus What it is A biodata-shaped immersive space. Why we like it Immersive environments are not news anymore. Infinity rooms, total screen rooms, projection tunnels, kinetic spaces: there are lots of formats that we know of. But the idea of this space that combines projection mapping and kinetic shape-shifting surprised even us. The room is unique for every visitor: recording his/her EEG, it changes its internal shapes and projection content to become ultimately personal to the visitor’s brainwaves — and allowing to watch others’ room shapes, too.
That’s it for this week. Feel free to contact your Immersives with any questions and comments.
Please do contact us in case you’re so inspired that you’re ready to send a project from this bulletin as a reference or a proposal to your client. We are happy to consult you on feasibility and implementation details beforehand.
