Day of the Dead Holojam


Created at NYU’s Media Research Lab for its Holojam platform, this Day of the Dead VR experience places you in a festive parade traveling down a crowded city street. Participants were strapped into a minimal motion capture suit and placed in a communal virtual space with a “pen” to draw in the air and play musical instruments.


Holojam is a hybrid physical/virtual platform for multi-user experiences. It is powered by Unity, GearVR and an Optitrack motion capture system with custom software to allow for untethered standing VR applications.
