Kinect-Powered Set Creates An Imaginary Environment For The Ballet [Video]

Pioneering technology enables ballet to move into modern times.

The Paris-based contemporary ballet Mr. & Mrs. Dream features a high-tech set that brilliantly combines virtual reality with live dance. Kinect sensors are placed above the stage to track the dancers’ movements and the resulting effects immerse the audience into a fantasy world.
