This multi-user, AR/VR, theatrical experience brings to life the origin story of Frankenstein through the eyes of a young Mary Shelley.
VR users can see each other as avatars and are immersed in the full scale set around them, while AR users view VR users and the entire show at 1/5th scale on a tabletop, simultaneously.
MATM was produced in partnership with the NYU Future Reality Lab, with support from Magic Leap.
