Said "This site now has 9 pages (and about 200 pics and vids) besides this one. Follow the numbers at the bottom and jump to 9 and work back for hand work and other samples. Almost all the videos on this site were created and rendered in real-time in the Virtual Production Studio. I am happy to help."

Extreme LED/OLED Immersion Adventure This unit uses high resolution LED and High resolution Transparent OLED to present a viable HUD visor and touch screen desktop game interface. This is married to a custom POD chair complete with two joystick controllers and motion base airbag system. Event Horizon Exploration: Your job as chief science officer is to survey the known black holes in this quadrant and feed as much data back to the main ship as possible. No matter what.

This "Extreme" LED training simulator would be mounted on a 6 DOF motion base with a turntable. The LED screen is mounted on a separate lift system so it can be lowered into position as the motion base brings the car up into active position. It is a Trainer and an attraction requiring approximately 600 sq. ft. and would also be built with real-time high resolution 360 graphics. The cars are real. The situational training is as real as it gets in a simulator. Fine tuning and great training equals a total Immersion experience. 911 GT2 RS world record at the Nürburgring Nordschleife : Porsche

Dive into an LED Immersive Ocean Adventure! This unit can be a trainer and an attraction with multiple seating versions possible. Real-time graphics available along with motion simulator. Bring the world's oceans to life in vivid detail. Learn about replanting the reefs and collect samples with the robotic claw. I have already built one of these for a client with earlier technology, different story, game play and motion base several years ago. (https://flextek-media.weebly.com/)

"FOUNTAINS OF LIGHT" LED Fountain series: These LED fountain sculptures were inspired by the recent Denver Airport public art competition. Each piece was created to be an "island" of peace where travelers could rest, pause and refresh their psyche with magical sounds and color and light. These "Fountains of Light" would be engineered and constructed with with the blend of carbon fiber, resin soaked Nomex honey-comb, Steel tube sub frame and bulkheads, tensioned with an internal cable truss system tied back to the reinforced base. Each fountain would also be fitted with motion sensors that would sense movement and temperature causing the fountains to react to the visiting guests.

This is a world created in a VR environment with a great team. Each scene is filmed in VR and when this project is finished the plan is to make the whole experience open to the public. Our goal is to make immersive experiences that tell a compelling story and allow the guests to participate in the evolution of the adventure,with or without a headset.

This LED Immersion Theater was created and designed to offer guests an Immersion Experience without having to wear a headset. It can be equipped with motion sensors and input devices to further enhance or augment the experience. The Gaia Garden is part of an IP being developed exclusively in a VR environment that uses actors and avatars and stunning environments to tell a compelling magical story about helping the planet, "Our Home" survive and thrive for the future. Here we see the princess visiting with Gaia and welcoming a new season to the secret garden. Music: Yellow Brick Cinema (re-sampled & augmented)

Technology and science now permeate our lives. The S.T.E.A.M. project, with the right mix of exhibits, attractions,events and experiences could act as a unique showcase and "Experience/ Discovery-Entertainment Center" where new and exciting immersive technologies could be showcased and enjoyed by all. Technology can be FUN ! Imagine the next generation "Dave & Buster's" meets the "Exploratorium" and the Baltimore Power Station. Live tours of this build in the VR production Studio are available via Skype. I am happy to help.

Mckenzie River Discovery Center: This is a project design concept I put together for a friend to help a group understand what they should expect to experience in a "highly" interactive , state of the art, immersive museum experience in approximately 20,000 plus square feet and a budget of between $500 and $800 USD per square foot. Some of the exhibits we have already built in real-life, complete with motion base and interactive paddle systems, with R&S Production Services Inc. and would be revisited with all new technology and graphics. These exhibits would utilize all the latest in touch screen, gesture, AR/VR/MR, 360 3D, Projection mapping, LED and projection screens and sound mapping to immerse the guest in the latest state of the art in technology available.

This is PART 2 of a fun " VR-ART" project I created, designed, built, assembled and recorded in VR in real-time. All elements were fully animating and adjustable on the fly. This is a work in progress with about 24 hours into it. Total render time is 4:32 (min.) And you can walk around in it! Scale is 30 meters tall. Too fun! It ain't perfect, but it is a good way to "3D sketch" ideas

About Me:
Every day is a new chance to explore amazing fun technology. My first real job, at 19 was working in a typesetting shop that used steel type and hot lead typesetting machines. Cherry Hill Composition, across the bridge from Philly. We were working on Ray Bradbury books for Random House in New York City. I shoveled lead slugs, melted and poured ingots and ran a proof press and always kept my eye on the"Machine". The incredible Linotype machine. What an intricate machine! A mechanical computer! Google it! The place was alive and the people were brilliant! Amazing changes to live through.

This site features almost 200 samples of my work, some with many artists involved, on almost 10 pages. The first few pages are all real-time animation productions and tests, as well as my VR museum and...
