HamletVR! / by Ted Lee

m3diate is very happy to announce our partnership with the To Be With Hamlet team!

m3diate is providing the networked multi-user VR and 3D audio platform which will provide audience members with a hyper realistic audio experience.  This will enable participants to have an even more intimate connection with Prince Hamlet.

To Be With Hamlet is the world’s first Virtual Reality (VR) production of Shakespeare and one of the first projects to stage a live performance in social VR. The production’s head-tracking technology empowers audience members to move with Hamlet through virtual battlements as he confronts his murdered father’s vengeful ghost. By utilizing cutting-edge Social Virtual Reality technology, the production also enables participants to see their fellow audience members in virtual space in real-time, creating a virtual immersive theatre experience like no other. 

We're currently testing the integrated platform in New York, Netherlands, Shanghai and Abu Dhabi.  Despite the vast distances between audience members, the experience will make you feel like you are in the same black box theater with the actor and other audience members.
