    The Future of Entertainment

    The Future of Entertainment

    Shopping malls, arcades, even mini-putt …all great examples of “location-based-entertainment” (or LBEs as we like to call them). Now, the definition of LBEs have expanded and it’s all about creating an immersive experience that adds cutting edge technology like motion tracking, projection mapping, and VR. With malls closing, and movie theatres in jeopardy - what’s the future of entertainment? Today we talk to Secret Location's Executive Producer Michala Duffield, and Creative Director Stephen Bosco on their new LBE called "Waking WonderLand". We also (virtually) travel to Australia to talk to Bob Cooney, an early adopter and innovator in the LBE and Virtual Reality space.
