Utlilising the powerful next-generation technology of the Microsoft HoloLens2, this is a world-first interactive ghost hunt. Combining the cutting edge technology of the Micorsoft Hololens 2 and the Subpac haptic feedback vest – coupled with the brand new 5G network – the viewer experiences an immersive ghost experience like no other.
As the viewer moves around the room, historical characters appear out of the fog or walking out of walls, much to the surprise and horror of the viewers!
The Microsoft HoloLens2 is the second iteration of Microsoft’s revolutionary head-mounted mixed reality device. It’s a device you put on your head, with a visor over your eyes, which enables a completely new way of interacting with information.
The Hololens is Microsoft’s take on augmented reality, which they call “mixed reality”. Using multiple sensors, advanced optics, and holographic processing that melds seamlessly with its environment, These holograms can be used to display information, blend with the real world, or even simulate a virtual world.
Combined with the incredible AR technology of the Hololens2, we utilised wearable sound technology to add deeper levels to the sense of immersion. The Subpac is a haptic feedback vest which makes the user able to not only hear the sound, but feel it. We designed the audio to mimic the heartbeat of the viewer increasing – as well as spooky sound effects that the viewer can ‘feel’ using sub bass frequencies.
Shot in a studio environment, the mixed reality experience combines live action, stunts, special effects and CGI to create a truly immersive and unique experience. Along with its sister project “Robin Hood – Arrow Through Time” – The Rufford Ghost Walk experience has been championed as a world first in this field. This project was created in conjunction with GOOII Ltd. of Nottingham – our talented development partners.
