ORLANDO, Fla., June 15, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Verse Orlando, the groundbreaking Holographic TheaterSM, is announcing its ribbon cutting ceremony on June 29th, 2023 with the launch of Art of the Future, a celebration of augmented reality and artificial intelligence. Situated in the City of the Future at Lake Nona’s world famous Boxi Park, Verse Orlando is set to redefine the boundaries of machine-human evolution with an immersive exhibit that forces the question: In the world of art, is AI a tool, a collaborator, or a distraction?
On the heels of the commercially and critically successful launch of The Unreal Garden, The debut of the Art of the Future at Verse Orlando forces a conversation centered around the role of AI in Spatial Computing. Orlando’s unique position as the MetaCenter at the forefront of augmented/virtual reality, artificial intelligence, gaming, and 3D reconstruction aligns perfectly with Verse Orlando’s mission to catalyze the growth of Spatial Computing through experiences which connect players in the real world.
“Artificial Intelligence and Augmented Reality are fundamentally reshaping our relationship with technology,” said Ray Kallmeyer, CEO of Enklu, and Producer of Verse Immersive. “Orlando’s vibrant tech ecosystem, world-class talent, and innovative spirit have been instrumental in bringing this new exhibit: ‘Art of the Future’ to life. We simply couldn’t have done it without the help of the contributing artists, the Orlando Economic Partnership and the Orlando Tech Community. There’s no place on Earth like Orlando for Innovation in Spatial Computing.”
Verse Orlando’s Holographic TheaterSM transcends traditional creative boundaries, transporting audiences into captivating realms where imagination comes to life in augmented reality. From breathtaking virtual landscapes to dynamic digital sculptures, Art of the Future features emerging artists, celebrated masters, and unique AI-powered collaborations in 3D.
“Soon, every single pixel will be generated. Not rendered: generated,” Jensen Huang CEO of NVIDIA said recently in his commentary discussing the Metaverse. NVIDIA’s stock has soared to $1.05 trillion in recent months as the rise of Generative AI has propelled the usage of Graphics Processing Units (GPUs) to unprecedented heights.
“With the announcement of Apple’s Vision Pro One headset, and a new generation of AI-empowered creators shaping our entire reality, this exhibit intends to force a necessary conversation about how we see the world, and the power we provide to AI,” says Ray.
Verse Orlando’s ribbon cutting ceremony will take place at 6:00 PM on June 29th, 2023, at its location in Lake Nona’s Boxi Park. The event will bring together esteemed guests, industry leaders, and members of the press to celebrate the birth of this groundbreaking establishment.
