Our partners at SuperUber incorporated an OpenDome Portal into the AT&T Lounge at SXSW in 2013. We scaled the design for our standard semi-permanent Portal to 4m in diameter, and provided an OmniFocus 200 series projection system. SuperUber built an enclosure for the dome to fit the booth branding, with the projector inside a 10″ platform. The 90-degree fold in the optics allows the technology to disappear, with only the lens visible by the users, for a truly immersive experience.
Here’s what SuperUber had to say: “Visitors are pulled through a metaphorical vortex and spit out at their destination selected via touchscreen from locations in and around Austin and the SXSW festival. Full-scale imagery projected onto a vertical semi-sphere covers the visitor’s peripheral vision, creating an immersive experience. Teleporter was presented in partnership with Relevant at the AT&T Lounge at South by Southwest Festival.”
