The Reactive Wall pairs Kinect sensors with high quality 3D animated projections to bring to life a kind of Cretaceous zoo. It's the closest we've come to working on an actual Jurassic Park. (Cretaceous Park)
ABOUT THE REACTIVE WALLS
Part of the Ultimate Dinosaurs: Giants from Gondwana exhibit at the Royal Ontario Museum, this immersive, fun & scientifically sound, brings animals and plants of the Cretaceous to life.
The ROM wanted to bring to life and highlight the differences between the northern and southern hemispheres during the Late Cretaceous.
We worked alongside ROM's curatorial team to dream up and make this immersive visual and reactive storytelling experience come to life.
The Reactive Walls Kinect-sensing exhibit come alive with amazing floor-to-ceiling background environments, produced by the immensely talented paleoartist, Julius Csotony. We used Julius' background environments as a canvas and added to them animated 3D plants and animals that react to visitor presence.
The result is a vibrant Late Cretaceous zoo that feels alive and where visitors influence the actions of animals and plants with their presence.
