At the IVRPA we are showing VRs in different ways. One of the ways to enjoy panoramas is using a Paul Bourke style immersive video projection on a 2.90m diameter hemisphere.

On day 2 we finally got our dome theater to work. We decided to have the dome projection shrouded in black cloth; the projector just could not cope with the ambient light at the booth. I am almost happy with the result. Some extra tinkering might be in order... Come experience the dome theater at out booth!

Like last Photokina, I shot a quick handheld panorama minutes after first arriving at the IVRPA booth on day 0.

The past few days I've been working hard to prepare an immersive dome projection on the booth. When I finally arrived at the booth I was somewhat struck by the sheer size of the hole in the wall. Oh my, if only the calculations for the halfdome gores are correct...
