What is the Future of VR Domes?

 “Immersive FullDome VR Environments Have the Capacity to Affect Positive Social Outcomes in the Human Consciousness Movement.” — Pacific Domes, Inc.

A Futuristic World Where VR meets A.I.?

What is the future of VR? What does the future of an immersive and interactive Virtual Reality (VR) environment look like? Is it a world where the blurred borders between organic reality and artificial intelligence render them both indistinguishable from each other?


According to Google’s Ray Kurzweil, the Singularity (when A.I. merges with human intelligence) is just around the corner, with true full immersion virtual reality beginning around the 2030s. True full immersion VR will involve something akin to nanobots − robots the size of human blood cells that will enter our bloodstream and interact with our brains and nervous systems. These nanorobots will have the capacity to shut down inputs to our senses from the real world, replacing them with signals from the virtual world.

Is Robotic & Nanobot Technology Disruptive?

The future will belong to the Nature-Smart ― those individuals, families, businesses and political leaders who develop a deeper understanding of the transformative power of the natural world, and who balance the virtual with the real. The more high-tech we become, the more nature we need.” ― Richard Louv, author of the best-selling book “Last Child in the Woods… Saving Our Children from Nature-Deficit Disorder

While there’s no denying that modern research is uncovering many exciting and beneficial applications for robotic and nanobot technology, if you’re among those wondering whether this technology will be disruptive to our biofields (scientific definition of our ‘energy fields’), you’re not alone. There’s sufficient independent scientific evidence to suggest that we are at a junction point in our evolution as a human species ― the more technology we have, the more we need nature to balance and protect our biofields.

As we prepare to move into even deeper levels of entertainment and information, isn’t it time to take a closer look at the tradeoffs we are making each and every day? Scientific research shows that technology impacts our environment, personal health and wellbeing. If we are to move responsibly into the future, we need to address our commitment to walking in balance with natural law. Read more…

What is an Immersive and Interactive VR Dome Platform?
Your marketing strategy deserves the best when it comes to event planning! With old technology, people experience VR in isolation: you strap on a headset and headphones and are instantly transported into a virtual environment. But doesn’t this disconnect you from the people around you?

In a 360° VR dome environment, your audience is right smack in the middle of the story. This involves their real senses. Your audience remains captivated during the entire immersive and interactive experience.

Together, they create multi-sensory immersive environments for interactive learning and entertainment experiences. 

Domes have an excellent capacity for projection and lighting innovation, and the spherical design naturally amplifies sound.  There’s no interference from center beams in the staging arena, and the overhanging truss system becomes the perfect housing for 360⁰ lighting and sound to capture the audience experience.

The spherical design of a Virtual Reality Dome encapsulates the largest volume of interior space with the least amount of surface area, and is suited to all types of terrains.  When the dome’s diameter is doubled it will quadruple its square footage and yield eight times its volume, thus saving on materials and cost.

While ensuring a light eco-footprint, the fetching combination of Pacific Domes geo-engineered 360° VR projection domes and cutting-edge technology transports your viewing audience into a magical IMAX-size experience.
