  • Patent number: 10067558
    Abstract: An interactive system and method of the present invention provides a customized experience to individual spectators of a live performance. An input device receives a performance parameter selected by a spectator, and physical features of the spectator are scanned into a processor. Real time data collectors are associated with performers in the live performance, wherein the processor receives the performance parameter from the input device and real time performance data from the real time data collectors, and generates an individually customized real time performance based on the performance parameter and the physical features of the spectator as superimposed with the real time performance data, and further provides the customized real time performance to a virtual reality device for real time presentation to the spectator.

  • Patent number: 9077865
    Abstract: An interactive system and method of the present invention provides a customized experience to individual spectators of a live performance. At least one virtual reality device is associated with a spectator of the live performance, and each virtual reality device is coupled to a processor to independently receive real time virtual reality sensory effects projected from the processor in response to parameters selected by the associated spectator. The virtual reality device may be for example eyewear which projects the real time virtual reality sensory effects as substituting in effect for visual effects associated with the actual live performance. Selectable parameters may include one or more of a visual perspective for the spectator, costumes associated with performers, and background scenery elements.
