Euclideon To Open Holoverse Entertainment Centre On Gold Coast, Australia
Next month, Bruce Dell of Euclideon will open the world’s first hologram entertainment centre, Holoverse, in Southport on the Gold Coast, Australia.
Holoverse is an entertainment centre will feature a total of 40 holographic rooms offering visitors incredible and unique experiences!
"In the room there will be simple things like a statue of an elephant coming out of the wall that people can put their hand through, as well as snowflakes falling from the sky to African safaris and holographic water up to your waist with fish jumping around you," Mr Dell told 612 ABC Brisbane's Steve Austin. "There will be holes in the floor where you can see down hundreds of metres."
The huge complex will also give visitors the chance to learn more about technology and it’s uses, as well as learn about different environments and engage in holographic experiences. The team at Euclideon, according to Mr Dell, are excited to be bringing such a unique world-class experience to the public, the likes of which have only been dreamed of in science fiction.
"We often say science fiction has been our friend as it's given us 20 years of free advertising."
The Queensland-based company works with a team of 35 employees in Australia and offices around the world, and although the opportunity to move the project overseas was available, Mr Dell wanted to keep the project local “to strengthen Australia."
Mr Dell began this journey by experimenting with 3D graphics and then turning to holographic technology, and it is from this 3D technology that the Holoverse project mwas born. He explained, "Here in Australia things are changing and I think Australia will be the new leaders in 3D technology.”
Holographic technologuy has already assisted in medical fields among others, and Dell believes the technology can be used to assist in the preservation of famous world sites, such as the Great Barrier Reef. "We're scrambling to scan these locations so people can enjoy them via holograms for generations… Money can then return to those locations, to work on the upkeep of them."
However, the dream for Mr Dell is to allow people the chance to appear in their own "holonovels" in the future. "People will one day be able to go into holographic stories and play a role ... stories where you are the main character," he said.
This is an exciting venture for Australia, especially with the Holoverse project opening in one of Australia’s most popular tourist destinations.
