Introduction To Immersive Story Environments

In a trend we have labeled Immersive Story Environments, we see how developers are creating technology that enables audiences to delve deeper into stories and media than ever before, entering augmented and virtual reality experiences. Completely immersive, these technologies are changing our relationship with storytelling, letting us be active participants in a fantasy world.

Virtual Reality Goggles Aim For Completely Immersed Gaming

The Oculus Rift is a pair of Virtual Reality goggles that consist of a headband and attached LCD screen, with a barrier so that each eye sees the screen separately, giving the experience a sense of depth. In combination with the illusion of distance, the goggles include a motion-tracking technology, which means the 3D environment will respond to your head movements, providing a truly immersive experience.

How New Tech Breaks Content Outside the Limits of the TV Screen

Microsoft’s IllumiRoom is a proof-of-concept system that uses an Xbox Kinect and a standard projector to throw content from the TV onto the walls and furniture, overlaying its surroundings with the contextual visualizations.
