Last week, THE VOID returned to Vancouver for TED’s annual conference that brings together more than a thousand people to talk and learn about the future of Technology, Entertainment and Design—as well as science, business, the arts and the global issues facing our world.
In alignment with this year’s TED theme, The Future You, THE VOID exhibit showcased the future possibilities of stepping beyond reality into virtual destinations like the Ghostbusters: Dimension—an experience that has already amazed tens of thousands and is available to guests at Madame Tussauds New York in New York City, NY, The Beach in Dubai, UAE and at the company’s headquarters in Lindon, UT.
Ghostbusters: Dimension allowed TED attendees to step beyond reality and experience what it is like to be a Ghostbuster; tracking and trapping a supernatural foe through a New York apartment complex in an environment that combines physical props and sets, real-time interactive effects and virtual reality technology. Guests that were able to experience Ghostbusters: Dimension from THE VOID confirmed that all of their senses were stimulated throughout the adventure.
“It was exciting to be back again at TED this year,” said James Jensen, co-founder and Chief Visionary Officer at THE VOID. “Bringing Ghostbusters: Dimension to the conference presented an opportunity to show the potential of THE VOID to thought leaders around the world.”
THE VOID exhibit at TED confirmed for conference attendees that VR continues to be an important market and while other areas of VR may not be living up to the expectations yet, technology limitations can be overcome and VR can have broader appeal thanks to experiences created by THE VOID.
Participants were able to move freely throughout the experience, truly acting as a Ghostbuster. After all, the true power of THE VOID’s design is the deep immersion that delivers a memorable, shared and social experience beyond reality for all who choose to enter.
