Shared Reality – The ‘Reality Technology’ of the future, today

January 1, 2021

Immersive Technology
Chances are you have heard about various ‘reality technologies,’ namely virtual reality, augmented reality, and mixed reality. These technologies deliver a range of immersiveness, all blending the real and virtual into a highly sensory and interactive user experience. Though their features may vary, reality technologies are accessible in headsets, smartphones, or computer screens, among other devices.
Full immersion in a virtual environment.

The real world enhanced with digital objects.

Interact with the real world and the virtual environment.

But what do you know about Shared Reality?

Cosm is creating a new type of reality technology that brings immersive experiences to physical spaces. Cosm’s CX Display envelopes around the entire audience, transforming the space into anything imaginable. Step onto the field of your favorite sporting event, take a trip through space, or enjoy front row concert seats with your friends. This is Shared Reality – it combines the best of both virtual and physical worlds.

Shared Reality stands apart from other reality technologies in two significant ways. First, it captures the raw emotion and energy of the performance on the screen as the immersive nature of the venue acts as a conduit for that collective energy to be shared and enjoyed by the entire audience. Imagine fans cheering their alma mater on to win a national championship 40 years in the making, reveling together in the highs of touchdowns scored or field goals kicked. Picture the glistening eyes of Lady Gaga’s Little Monsters as they sway to a soulful new ballad during a live concert broadcast. Those emotions and that powerful energy coursing through an immersive venue are one distinction of Shared Reality.
The second differentiator: Shared Reality is a collective experience, not just an individual one. That means looking over at your best friend or even a total stranger and high-fiving when the winning point is scored or savoring the last note of a song as it lingers in the air – together. Shared Reality speaks to fundamental human nature’s need to witness and validate experiences with others.
Shared Reality is equal parts reality technology and convivial social experience. This is the future of immersive entertainment.
