Exciting rapidly developing technologies are moving to a point of synthesis which will transform daily life and architecture. Operable full height glass walls are the screen for a virtual immersive sports environment supported by cameras and high-powered computing. Recent innovations integrated into this design include the latest in glass technology, including oversize glass and switchable glass, screen technology, using transparent screens, and computing, including smart cameras, with supporting high powered analytic software and high speed hardware.
The Immersive Sports Terrace – is a multi-function garden pavilion designed to take digital experience outside. The IST is designed to supplement reality, not supplant it.
The ephemeral nature of the digital environment, while designed for sports, easily lends itself to a variety of functions. The digital nature means that there are few specific physical manifestations of the sports program, making the imagination the only limit to its functionality.
While the prototype might be a custom one-off high-end tech toy, the IST could be developed into a modular system that could be deployed in residential, work and education environments.
