To overcome the challenges, participants will be equipped with the latest technology, such as motion sensors and the VivePro virtual reality headset.
In the words of Jaume Badia, executive creative director at DDB, “e-tron room: The Future Paradox” demonstrates Audi's strong commitment to entertainment experiences. Bearing in mind that the Audi e-tron represents the future of mobility, our creative proposal had to be equally innovative. The way to do this was through the only hyper-reality experience of its kind in the world, which is receiving the praise of many industry experts.”
The experience has an algorithm that interprets human postures in real time and builds a full-scale avatar of the player, allowing total body immersion. In addition, for the first time there will be a real actor, who plays the role of a robot, and will act as a travel advisor, accompanying the players and making it a unique experience.
The distinguishing feature of the experience devised by DDB together with the Glassworks production company is the motion capture system, which allows the players' activity and the positions of different objects in the room to be transposed into the virtual world. The system has 36 cameras and 28 sensors.
