Spring Therapy: a Prototype Immersive Experience Pod


I recently prototyped an immersive experience pod for Geologic Cognition Society that we used in our booth at the Cleveland Mini Maker Faire held at the Cleveland Public Library in March. The structure was cobbled together from honeycomb walled cardboard, EPS foam, and nuts and bolts and a lot of hot-melt glue. John Daniel (Geologic Cognition Society's electronic musician) wrote a quick track for the pod and I quickly paired it with some iPhone captured video. We didn't have a lot of time from start to finish, but we pulled it off and people had a great time. This project was my first attempt to design and build a pod for GCS, and we'll be working out the details of materials and production for GCS's Geologic Deep Time pod described here. Check back later this week for more information about the immersive content presented in this installation.
