Is this the future of interactive video? In what’s known as ‘spatial storytelling’, prototype INDA is the first animated story that delivers an immersive 360-degree experience on iPad.
As the iPad pans, so does the view within the animation. As the user chooses to explore the animation, the story plays out through different paths, according to the angles the viewer takes, or their focus on particular characters or events. The audio is 3D and sensitive to the viewer’s body orientation, to give a feeling of immersion.
The project was presented at the Tokyo Game Show 2013 and X Media Lab Switzerland. A crowdfunding campaign will start soon to launch the project, to be released on iOS and Android devices.
