Asterodrome: Force-of-Gravity Simulations in an Interactive Media Theater

Abstract : This paper presents an interactive entertainment experience deployed in a configurable surround projection environment that we called the media theater. This immersive installation is based on a real-time space simulator displaying several asteroid belts with large amounts of objects orbiting a sun. The sun acts as a dynamic center of gravitation that can be controlled by users with the help of a tracking system. Furthermore, it allows users to experiment with gravity in order to see how their interaction manipulates all objects in space.
