Gaming and Entertainment
Do you need a partner to help you memorize a speech or lines for a play or film? Do you want to act out your favorite scenes with friends or a computer-generated reader? Do want to practice performing your speech in front of an audience? Drama Club is the VR experience for you.
What it does
Like Guitar Hero for performers. Drama Club is a VR acting and performing experience where participants can either choose a script from a popular film or play or load their own material. Then, users can memorize lines, perform scenes or speeches, and receive accuracy feedback from a virtual “director” powered by IBM Watson. A virtual actor will run lines with you, or grab friends to act out a scene. There's also Merge Cube integration to incorporate virtual tactile props. Users can grab a skull when reciting Hamlet's soliloquy or a sword when acting out the scene from The Princess Bride!
Who it's for
Drama Club is for actors, public speakers, and VR game enthusiasts. It's a fun and exciting way to commit text to memory and challenge friends in a gameplay format.
Use Drama Club as a memorization tool, or enter Performance Mode that rewards accurate line performance and penalizes you for taking a peek at your script. As mistakes stack up, the stage lights begin to dim. Too many mistakes? The lights go down and the curtain closes. Watch out for tomatoes! Flawless performance? Watch the awards statues pile up and read rave reviews in the media.
