What if...

You could shape the world your audience can see

mixing the real world with a computer generated holographic one

you could bring your audience to places where no man has gone

and bring dragons or any other creature to live

in an holographic world that interacts with the real one

wouldn't that be fantastic?

Augmented vs Virtual reality


Augmented reality (AR) gives you the image of the real world with additional digital content where virtual reality (VR) places you in a digital created environment.

WHAT IS AUGMENTED REALITY?

Augmented reality (AR) is the blending of virtual reality and real life. With AR, users continue to see the real world while interacting with virtual objects around them

WHAT IS VIRTUAL REALITY?

Virtual reality (VR) is the creation of a virtual world that users can interact with. VR places you in a virtual world by wearing a VR helmet. With VR, the user is isolated from the real world while immersed in a world which is completely fabricated.

WHY STAGE PERFORMANCES SHOULD USE AUGMENTED REALITY

Stage performances first came to live in ancient Greece and remained popular ever since. In the last few decades the entertainment sectors has been flooded with new technology, resulting in a very influential cinematic and gaming industries. Operating with significant competitive advantages over stage performances.
It’s not coincidental that the creative industry is booming leaving much of the performing arts in need of support.
However imagine a future where theatres make the advantages of the cinematic and gaming world their own! Where the differences between live performances, cinemas and games become vague.
Stage performances where directors control every visual aspect to create new and exciting forms of interactive theatre with the power to astound a whole new audience.
This is a world limited only by imagination, where stage entertainment is brought into a new dimension.
Welcome to the world of Holomadness.

How it works

Existing technology suitable for stageperformances:
3-D projections in background
2D projection on transparant screen
glass pyramid with 4 simultaneaus projections (one for each side)
4) laser projection

Comming technology for stages:
- Hololens -
The holographic digital environment is only visible wearing special AR-glasses (Hololens).
The required hardware (Augmented Reality glasses) will become available in 2016/2017.
Hololens solve most of the disadvantages from all other existing methods, like the necessity of a dark background, the requirement of beamers, lightcontrol etc. Hololens can place (and fix) any digital created hologram in any place.
