ORB - Project

ORB - Project at CMU: "The ORB or Overlaid Reality bubble is a inflatable fabric dome with a digital projector inside with a special lens that expands the image to a 270 degree.

This experience is controlled by an off-the-shelf computer with a surround sound system.
We are now developing new software for this system in order to have an easier interface to play both movie clips and interactive experiences.

One of our most important limitations is that all of the hardware has to be reasonably easy to obtain and add to the experience, and the software developed should run comfortably in this platform.
