The installation based game shade can be controlled by the movement of the head. In a virtual world the user can look around only by moving his head. He is navigating with a gamepad on three projection screens. The stereoscopic 3D panorama projection starts a short immerive journey into an unknown world. This world is only defined by shadow and light. Additional stage lights illuminate the real world and generate an extended virtual reality.
The simulation is rendered in real-time by using a SLI computer system, CryEngine3, nVidia 3D-Vision, three 3D beamers, a head-tracker and directly controlled stage lights through CryEngine. shade is the degree work of Jens M. Stober at the University of Arts and Design Karlsruhe.
