Obviously I'm partial, after all I animate for a concentric dome and then help to present the shows to our audiences.My viewpoint is atypical here (pun intended), but reading these posts reinforces my appreciation of our concentric 85-seater at Kutztown University of PA. I mostly work with computer science students, and for the first time with communication design students this semester, building novel interactive multimedia systems for a concentric planetarium, with a focus on processed music and its visualization. So far nothing has made it past the prototype, experimental stage, but it sounds like if I ever try to go commercial with some software, I will have to account for non-concentric domes.
It's not just the dome, either. It's great fun to watch the faces across the room during one of these gigs.
