Cosmos Dome at San Diego Comic-Con
San Diego, California, USA – July 2018: San Diego Comic-Con is one of the most iconic and memorable conventions in the world for fantasy and science fiction storytelling. That includes documentary science fiction like FOX’s hit show “Cosmos”.
4D Immersive Dome Experience
Every year, hundreds of thousands of fans converge on San Diego’s beautiful bay front to experience comics, stories, and pop culture in person – one of the biggest draws is a sneak peek at upcoming shows. This year, we delivered a glimpse into the world of “Cosmos” via a 33’ / 10m geodesic projection dome with 4D Effects!
Due to the massive number of shows, books and movies that are featured at Comic-Con, it takes something special to really make a splash. When FOX and National Geographic were looking for an exciting and innovative way to showcase the new upcoming season of “Cosmos” called “Possible Worlds”, they called on our team of experiential marketing and immersive experience specialists. Here is what we delivered
- To start with, our team produced a custom exterior printed dome cover that featured the iconic “Cosmos” branding
- We custom fabricated an interior replica of the “Cosmos” ‘Ship of the Imagination’ from the show set
- Our team produced a 4 minute, 4K, 4D animation that featured a preview of the new season
- We built custom immersive screen which went all the way to the floor to maximize immersion
- We integrated 8 very bright and high-resolution video projectors using our proprietary Omnispace Media Server Technology feat. Automatic Calibration
- An additional projection display on the ceiling that gave the illusion of looking out a window while experiencing the show environments
- Finally we integrated 4D effects using bursts of air that blew at guests at certain points in the experience
In the end, the Cosmos dome was a huge hit for FOX and National Geographic at Comic-Con, with more than 8,000 visitors seeing 80 shows per day!
