What does a door mean to you? Does it evoke feelings of opportunity or anxiety? How did a door become such a metaphor for success, failure, opportunity, family, home, change, transition, and so many other moments of emotional connection? After all, it’s just a door.
“The Door” is a one-of-a-kind, custom, prototype gateway to the known…or better described as an augmented, known reality. Picture a standard front door – white, with a small window at the top and a brushed aluminum handle. Now, picture this door in the middle of a busy road, walkway or park. If you open this door, you’re sure to know what’s on the other side. However, when you open THIS door you will discover an augmented version of the other side, and each time you close and reopen the door a different experience awaits, utilizing cameras and custom animation to create an augmented reality. The technology allows users to interact with the experience in real-time, individually or in groups.
