Black Euphoria & Bachibouzouk
Black Euphoria and Bachibouzouk are two French arts companies that had collaborated on various 360° and VR projects. They loved the medium but were looking for a more collaborative experience - and they found Igloo.
Once they had selected and commissioned their 7-metre cylinder, they came to visit us at Igloo HQ for a training session on how to build the Igloo, and operate the Igloo Media Player. And, almost immediately, they re-christened it Le Cube and began delivering events across France.
In some ways, they are now a competitor. As well as participating in arts festivals, they are hiring Le Cube out to their own clients. As they say in their publicity literature: “Le Cube offers the audience a completely fresh approach to virtual reality. The experience has evolved from a totally isolated one conditioned by having to wear a headset, to a collective one. Le Cube becomes a space for interaction and discussion. It enables users to act together on the film and turn it into a unique adventure each time.”
Used for controlling most aspects of the Igloo system, like triggering content, controlling playback and switching between content types.
An application that controls the Igloo wirelessly over a dedicated Wi-Fi network. Easily control different functions from tabs across the top of the app.
Back-end software that seamlessly blends all content from the multiple projectors in the Igloo. Corrects geometry and colour for an immersive experience.
