Making Waves in VR

What would it feel like to navigate a virtual environment manifesting the collective dream of a large artistic community? That is the question the lucid dreamers at Oscillations seek to answer. Oscillations is a movement and media arts production company capitalizing on the latest developments in VR and AR, neuroscience, and the performing arts to create a new wave of immersive content.

Yet, it is their true portability that has changed the rules and set a whole new trend in the 3D scanning market.

Where are the truly exciting opportunities for museums? And how do we get beyond just having to manage visitor expectations and the resultant problems with ‘more tech’?

Are museums the best place to find innovation in AR?
