Commerce Charter Township, MI – On April 29 2015, Robert Schinker launched a Kickstarter campaign for Virtuacast, a new app and technology system that creates the illusion of life size holograms to view and interact with. Virtuacast allows you to easily create and share viral videos.
“Virtuacast uses augmented reality technology to create fun and amazing videos,” explains the creator, “Recreate the famous tiger scene from the Hangover movie, or have President Obama appear in your kitchen preparing breakfast… and many more.”
Once you have your Virtuacast mat all you have to do is download and install the app to your iPhone or Android device. After launching the app, simply choose a hologram from the starter library, point the device’s camera at the Virtuacast mat and press start! Now you can view and record the magic of the hologram integrated into your environment and instantly share your new Virtuacast video via Facebook or Twitter from within the app.
“We have a great platform and some cool content, but there’s work to be done to port the software over to Android. Additionally, we have to get our mat manufacturing set up and finalize our package design,” the team says, “With your help, soon people everywhere will be able to experience the magic and fun of creating Virtuacast hologram videos in their own home.”
In exchange for pledging to the project, backers can gain access to a variety of rewards including the Virtuacast system with a Kickstarter Launch Pad for $45, a Launch Pad and pre-release version for i0S for $100, the Virtuacast system and your photo on a limited edition launch pad for $350, and more. Backers can even pledge to have their own hologram created and featured in a special Kickstarter version of the app!
