These two visitors of the IVRPA were the last two to experience the dome theater at the booth. After they left, the dome was turned off, and later dismantled. It was not easy to turn off the projection, after all the energy I had put into getting the dome up and running (twice!).

The panorama shown is 'A Paradise Called Caramoan' by Rommel Bundalian

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!
