The generic term for immersive semi-spherical screens is Fulldome. An OmniTheater™ is a brand name. Due to its wide-spread popularity, OmniTheater is akin to Kleenex and Jello; Fuldome more generic, like tissue and gelatin. There are many fulldome types, ranging from Planetarium domes to portable domes like the ones we sell, manufactured by Elumenati. Words used as synonyms for Fulldomes include 360 Video, 360 production, 360 degrees panorama, Immersive simulation, virtual production, immersive productions, etc. 360 degree video tends to mean a video shown on a circular strip, made famous at Epcot™. While theoretically "right up our alley" (and we have created 360º work), audience reactions have been muted, feeling that they're "missing something" due to the fact that half the picture is always being behind them. All the other terms, from virtual simulation (mostly used by the military, architects and engineering and medical researchers) and virtual reality, are standard names for certain kinds of dome production. BTW, IMAX™ is not the same as a dome. It is "immersive" due to size, but arguably not as effective as a spherical screen.
Interactive Surfaces (iSurfaces®) are computer generated images projected onto a screen, where a person's shadow or presence is detected, creating a reaction in real-time.
They are often also called an interactive screen, interactive wall, interactive floor, floor projection, etc. All of these are more or less correct, although our work is focused on the unique artwork of Zack Booth-Simpson.
Kinetic Sculpture means a physical work of art, with 3 dimensions, with parts that move as a result of an external power source. Most people might think of mobiles – the art world's answer to wind chimes. In the business, there are few synonyms, but we have seen people search for moving artwork and motion displays.
C.A.V.E. - Cave Automatic Virtual Environment
The CAVE, at this writing, is the most advanced simulation technology on earth. Synonyms like virtual tour, virtual walk-through, or computer simulated environment simply can't do justice to a 10x10 room you can get lost in.
