More than 100000 chemical reactions happen in your brain every second. So what about the moment you saw the girl of your dreams, and she saw you?
LoVR is a document of this moment. A story of love, told through neural activity captured over 4 seconds. As chemicals are released and areas of the brain activated, a form of poetry is revealed within the data. The heart beats, the iris dilates and time stands still as two lovers see each other for the first time.
Produced in 360 degrees, LoVR is an immersive experience. It will be released through multiple platforms such as Oculus Rift, Gear VR and fulldome. Stay tuned and visit http://www.luniere.com/project/lovr/ for more information

Designed in stereoscopic fulldome, VORTEX is an experiment in the audio-visual language of immersive environments. It is an ephemeral sculpture, driven by geometric soundscapes.

VORTEX is mastered at 8k, 60fps, in stereoscopic fulldome and has 3D spatial sound. When experienced together, these elements build a highly immersive and intimate environment. VORTEX is completely free to download and is available in several fulldome formats up to 4k resolution. For further information about the project, please visit: http://www.luniere.com/project/vortex/
This footage is a proof of concept and a first sample from our new, custom-built camera system for shooting ultra-high resolution motion-controlled timelapse suited for full dome (Omnimax) projections.
This is a DOWNSCALED preview. The original footage resolution is 5400 x 5400 px and is also available as a 4K (4096x4096) Dome Master.
The camera setup consists of a Hartblei Hcam-1 camera (http://bit.ly/hcam2), and in this particular case the Leaf Aptus 8 Digiback. As for the lens we used the new Canon 8-15mm which is an outstanding fisheye comparing to EVERYTHING that was on the market before. The Canon with this back was used at 12 mils, with other backs we plan on using it at around 14-15 mils.
With this camera setup we're able to capture equidistance mapping hemispherical timelapse shots of ultra high quality and extreme resolutions ranging from 4K (4096x4096) to almost 8K (7500x7500) suited for most demanding fulldome projects.
The sequences were captured during our second ever and first successful rig testing session in Poland in Jan, 2012. Unfortunately we had only 2 days to get this thing to work and the weather was pretty ugly, therefore this time the content itself is not particularly mind-blowing. However, the purpose of this test is to showcase the technology capabilities and deliver quality samples.
