Cutting Edge Multi-Reality Tourism Experiences
Since 2018, we've collaborated with the Space Needle and additional hardware and software partners to create the most amazing tourist experiences on the planet. From lifesize holographic characters, to the city of Seattle in Virtual Reality, to Augemented Reality Space Needles to take everywhere, to real-time digital 3D mobile memories.
Below you can get a hint of our efforts, including what's coming soon (holographic experiences), as well as an understanding of previous works including the Virtual Reality bungee jump aka #StratosVR, real-time 3D video, and a multitude of Augmented Reality experiences.

What it takes to build the Virtual Reality Bungee Jump #StratosVR
We spent 6 months making Seattle in VR using; maps, photogrammetry, panoramic photos from the top of the Needle, and lots of manipulation, simplification, optimization and creation.
We worked with several partners on the hardware and software side to ensure every element of the experience was immersive and accurate to the Space Needle's specifications
We made the buildings as accurate as possible, and even added 17 cranes in their correct positions, colors and directions
The STRATOS VR experience
What it takes to make the experience unforgettable
We put about 100 testers through it to determine the ideal duration - to be enjoyed and fulfilling, yet leave you wanting more!
We adjusted gravity to give you a thrill without causing motion sickness
We added artificial intelligence to people, cars, boats, trains, monorails, yachts, ferries and birds - so every experience is unique
How does it feel?
Let's let this guy explain...
Photo Animation Digital Memento
Before you step into the VR Bungee experience, the Space Needle staff snaps your photo and as you enjoy the bungee jump, your face is processed into a CGI animation of an avatar doing the jump! A video is then sent to the visitors phone that they can share with their friends and family on social media.
Augmented Reality for Space Needle Vistors
When visitors come to the Space Needle, they will find Augmented Reality targets places around the Space Needle that allow them to put animated Space Needles into photos the visitors take with their own phones by downloading the Space Needle app.
Can you tell the difference between Virtual And Reality?

How quickly can you spot the real Seattle?
