Small digital dome displays?
I'm working on a proposal for a SIGGRAPH course this year focusing on the
use of portable and small digital dome displays for education, outreach,
research, and art ("small" generally meaning domes under 30 feet). Fulldome
theaters have, for the most part, evolved in the context of planetaria,
while smaller and portable digital dome displays have grown up on trade
show floors, simulation & training labs, and art installations. The
collision of these worlds over the past couple of years have been yielding
exciting results, so I'm curious to learn how many of you are actively
using small and portable dome displays for pre-visualization,
installations/exhibits, travelling theaters, etc.
The proposed course will focus on both the technical aspects of small dome
displays (including different projection techniques, software tools, etc),
as well as topics particular to specific application fields. Please let me
know if you've got anything interesting going on that you'd like presented.
If you don't want to respond to the list please write me personally.
