There was a tremendous projection-mapped, immersive theater piece at Sundance this yr by Heartcorps known as Riders of the Storyboard. Educated road performers interacted with virtual projection-mapped 2D objects, and thru the sleight of hand magic broke these flat objects into the third as glowing 3D props.

There have been 15 folks packed right into a small room with about half a dozen performers for a 13-minute present about these 2D characters who work together with the performers who’re enjoying Alchemy of Gentle gods within the third dimension. It was an awe-inspiring efficiency, and the projection mapping know-how supplied a shared experience akin to what future augmented reality know-how may present.
Heartcorps is proving out a few of the methods with projection mapping know-how that also needs to work rather well in the way forward for reside efficiency and immersive theater designed for AR glasses.
I had an opportunity to meet up with the Heartcorps member and performer dandypunk, who talks about their course of, ritual inspiration, and combination of immersive theater and cutting-edge projection mapping. Make sure to take a look at the trailer and clips from their present at Sundance down under.
