Virtual reality isn’t science fiction anymore, it’s a rapidly growing and developing field that has a near infinite number of applications. While current offerings tend to be limited to virtual reality headsets that only work for a single person, Immersis wants to project virtual reality onto an entire room for multiple people to experience at once.
Virtual reality can make you feel like you’re high atop the Wall in Westeros, flying like a bird, or running from an alien intent on killing you, but to everyone else, you look like a spaz flailing about in high-tech ski googles. This makes demonstrating a head-mounted display like the Oculus Rift difficult in a group setting. You can set up a monitor that displays what you’re seeing, but the result is an underwhelming pair of screenshots. Hardly the immersive experience VR promises. That’s the insight behind a slick projector called Immersis that demonstrates the panoramic power of VR en masse.
