A Mixed Reality Interactive Documentary

Premiered at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival

Mixed reality interactive documentary about space-time narrated by astronomer Tony Stark (Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics). A real-time hologram of your body is integrated into the observatory room. Using the controllers, you bend space and time to your will, creating black-holes, worm-holes and time portals.

Mixed Reality Technology

This interactive documentary has been created using state-of-the-art technology developed at Imverse SA. The volumetric 3D environment has been reconstructed from a single 2D 360° picture using Imverse LiveMaker. The real-time volumetric 3D capture of the user’s body and the volumetric recording of the actor is powered by Imverse SA proprietary voxel-based graphics engine.
