The crowd will be displayed with the voice of gayagaya and girls. When you look around 360 degrees, you can see the scenery where the idols chat about here and there. Lastly, Haruka Amami ran to herself, "Good morning, Producer!" When the greeting is done, the picture ends. Since I can not see the surroundings at all, I'm afraid that if you stretch out my hand, "Do not touch ...?", You are likely to hit the people around you so be careful.
When you are experiencing a head mounted display, you can see the illusion that you are in 360 degrees in any direction, just as if you were in animation or video. The situation during the experience is as follows.

The 360-degree video experience is made possible because the prototype "head tracker" is mounted on the back of the device. It detects people's movements and links them with images.
This is where I got UVERworld pictures and I got my head tracker removed.
Moving the tracker changes the direction of the image. Because it is an actual live image, if a singer is approaching near the stage when you are watching the stage, there is a crowd that rises just behind when you change the direction, if the picture jumps in the excitement, the picture shakes vertically, even if you do not go to the live You can experience images full of realism.
There is no plan to commercialize the "special version head mounted display" so far.Experience booth of the same prototype that was exhibited at AnimeJapan 2014I had to queue in one hour waiting, but in Sony store Osaka waiting a few minutes I can experience not only anime images but also newly appearing video of the animation in a state that I can experience. People who missed last time or those who have business close to us are exhibited until Sunday, November 9, 2014, so please try experiencing "future devices" by all means.
