Javier Molina and his VR team at NYU Tandon decided that our very own virtual reality software, LiveAction was the best solution to deliver the believable character motion needed for their latest VR theatre production, To Be With Hamlet. Streaming natural behaviours from actor to 3D character in real-time was imperative for greater storytelling, as well as a convincing experience for audience participation during live shows.
Equipped with HTC Vive headsets, participants can see as well as interact with the virtual space, whether in the specially designed black-box theatre, or from a remote location.
