Tim Burton’s ‘Lost Vegas’ Exhibit Brought To Life Using VR And Drone Photogrammetry #ArtTuesady
Back in 2019, the Las Vegas sign preservation organization The Neon Museum gave Tim Burton the opportunity to bring his vision to its campus. Burton’s spin on the legendary Las Vegas signs became Lost Vegas and it can now be visited in a virtual reality. Here’s more from VR Scout:
At one point Winslow was able to get Burton himself in a headset to check out the virtual exhibit and give his approval on the placement of certain installations. According to Winslow, Burton greatly appreciated the amount of control designers had within the VR space, allowing them to make alterations in real-time and collaborate with others from across the globe.
“It took a few moments to get him comfortable in VR but once it clicked, he got so excited,” added Winslow. “Tim loved it so much. He kept saying, ‘Wow, this is so great. Hey! The dome looks pretty good from here!’”
