To make a non-violent nature themed 3d game for the Earth Theater of the Carnegie Museum of Natural History
using the Unreal Tournament engine.
Statement of Purpose:
The Earth Theater Project aims to produce innovative new content for
panoramic and dome-style theaters and to explore engaging modes of audience
interactivity. It is an ongoing collaboration between the Entertainment Technology Center (ETC)
and the Earth
Theater at the Carnegie Museum of Natural History
The Earth Theater is a partial-dome planetarium style theater located at the Carnegie Museum of
Natural History in Pittsburgh, PA. It is a Panoromic SkyVision Theater (a product of SkySkan, Inc).
The theater has a 40 foot diameter, a 210 degree horizontal viewing angle, a 30 degree vertical
viewing angle, and seats an audience of 68. The theater's five digital light projectors, slide
projectors, lighting instuments, and 4.1 channel surround sound are driven by
SkySkan's Spice Multimedia Control System. The SkyVision system was specifically designed for the
playback of pre-rendered full-dome & panoromic digital video.
