New VisionAire technology from Obscura Digital

In this video you’ll see Steve Mason demonstrating Obscura Digital’s VisionAire technology. He’s not using any controller in his hands. He’s not moving in sync with a pre-recorded video. They are using some proprietary motion capture technology to capture his movements and translate them to on-screen actions. The image is being projected from the ceiling reversed to a mirror on the floor. The image is then reflected to a screen net that is at a 45 degree angle to the presenter. Steve is able to move his arms around freely without having to touch anything. The audience that is front and center get’s the best view, but if your off to one side you can see the screen net. These guys are a group of talented engineers here in the bay.
