Reality goes virtual in this amazing America’s Got Talent performance

July 10, 2018

Somehow I managed to miss this amazing illusion that aired on America’s Got Talent last month. The Escape is a mind-bending bit of visual trickery that uses high tech holograms and old fashioned rope to tell a story about an unlucky player trying to escape a mad virtual reality game.

The show was developed (quite literally in some ways) by Ukrainian visual “solutions” company, Front Pictures, with the help of Red Rabbit Entertainment and PROFI LTD. 

The company has produced similarly impressive bits of what I’m going to dub virtual virtual reality for several other events, including the 2016 Eurovision Song Contest.
