3D Captures of Celebrities for AR and VR Performances in the Works

Published by , August 22, 2016 7:27 am

(Engadget)  RadicalMedia and Uncorporeal are partnering on 3D “immersive virtual representations” of celebrities for augmented reality and eventually virtual reality performances, giving digital stand-ins a greater presence. The technique encircles a green screen stage with 48 cameras, creating a hologram-like effect that not only works in any AR or VR format (including future headset tech), but can carry over to 2D video.
RadicalMedia isn’t ready to say which celebs will be involved, in part because it’s still negotiating deals.
