The Holohelmet is a head-mounted projector display that provides view-dependent images capable of immersing the wearer in a virtual 3D environment. The helmet uses innovative camera-based head tracking, provides dynamic binaural soundscapes together with generative audio and implements natural hands-free interaction using a Kinect sensor. This project emerged as an alternative implementation of camera tracking and calibration software developed by the 3D Content team at ProductionMagic in BBC R&D. The Holohelmet is a head-mounted projector display that provides view-dependent images capable of immersing the wearer in a virtual 3D environment.
In this demo the viewer is immersed into an exotic sea-side landscape and is able to swim and dive through the water using intuitive arm and body gestures.
