Camparc is a life-sized transparent ball. Inside the ball are a camera with a panoramic lens and a small computer. The computer sends video to a virtual reality headset via a mobile network connection.
The virtual reality headset measures your head movements so that they can be used to control what you see. With the headset you can see the world from the perspective of the Camparc ball while others play with it.
Camparc is a toy for playing together in public space. Surprise yourself, your playmates and the creators by inventing all kinds of new things to do with it.
An earlier version of Camparc did not include the virtual reality headset but in stead made use of a large public screen and anamorphic street art:
Camparc is a panoramic camera ball playground. It consists of a number of man-size balls which transmit live 360-degrees video to a large urban screen. Camparc invites people to explore their surroundings using these unique camera toys through free play. Anamorphic puzzles are drawn on streets and walls in the surrounding area to provide players with additional challenges. These drawings tie together the screen, balls and space in one delightful experience.
