An Immersive VR Experience
One thing we know well about lighting is that every situation is unique, and that can especially be said for this project. Installing our tubes on the Olympic Bobsled track in Whistler was an exciting challenge for us, both to install and come up with a lighting technique.
Samsung created a VR experience using their own technology for attendees of CES ( Consumer Technology Association), the annual trade show in Las Vegas. Users strap in to a a skeleton bob sled (head first!) , wearing a VR headset. The 360 video takes them through the track from start to finish, letting them experience the fastest bobsleigh track in the world as close as you can get to the real thing.
The video below shows the sledder rip by with the 360 camera mount to record the experience:
To film this experience with exciting lighting, we installed 64 of our RGB tubes along the 4,760 ft track and set up our decoders for a simple animation.
