Lantern Test in the CAVE

Virtual lantern CAVE test. This is from our residency at CAFKA/Christie in 2013. We are experimenting with creating tracked objects. The rusty old lamp here is fitted with motion capture cap markers which the system can see, this enables it to emit virtual light. For the CAVE user the light appears to emanate from the lantern centre – the CAVE user is wearing tracked stereo glasses that enable the system to distort the view in realtime so the perspective is correct for the wearer. We see in the video that it appears stretched all over the CAVE walls.
