WWE Testing Augmented Reality Experience
In a tweet posted by the WWE Performance Center, WWE has shared a possible augmented reality experience they’re testing. This would show the current Titantron videos as well as the occasional CGI props as objects in whatever room you happen to be watching wrestling in. The sample features the colorful graphics of the New Day alongside a virtual stack of pancakes.
Proof-of-concept from new @WWE Content Innovation Lab – #AR TV experience syncs with on-screen in-ring content. Superstar entrances explode into your living room with #AugmentedReality jumbotron, pancakes, unicorns and rainbows. With partners @eyecandylab and @NeoPangea #XR #MR pic.twitter.com/1yXUIpgf62
