Working for a company where storytelling and Technology go hand in hand, i don’t see why i shouldn’t be working more closely on something like this.
"For the past couple of years, Andrew has been working with his Façade collaborator Michael Mateas as well as with Larry LeBron on a DARPA-funded AI program. IMMERSE is a gestural-based, virtual training simulation for soldiers to learn deescalation social skills in non-English speaking environments."
But more importantly they have also founded a company called (http://www.playabl.ai) playbl-where they aim to make immersive playable dramas. So So excited to see this.
To take it a lever further, something more describable - imagine an interactive story- something close to DBSChillipaneer and that too in VR. The entire experience is magnified a 1000 times! The ideas are endless, shit loads of filming though ;)
