THE CROSS-REALITY ZONE

The Cross-Reality Zone its the second of the two main pillars constituting the HUMANEUS Center.

The Cross-Reality Zone is an experimental framework of modular dimensions combined with a production studio to build bridges between the humanities, the leisure world, the entertainment industry and the most advanced technologies.

The Cross-Reality Zone is a place of adventure and initiation, it is a course that puts to the test the visitor who crosses it and confronts it.

The Cross-Reality Zone is a vast evolutionary space extending over several levels of the HUMANEUS Center. It is by crossing the experimental frameworks that the public experiences and lives the knowledge discovered in the museum space of the Leibniz Institute.

WHY CROSS-REALITY ZONE?

The name Cross-Reality Zone [XR] refers to a hybrid mix of real and virtual environments that rely on traditional gaming and theatre experiences, video games, augmented reality [AR], virtual reality [VR] and artificial intelligence. [Al]. The Zone allows you to develop evolutionary and cutting-edge experiences, taking place in a physical space replicated [mirrored] in the virtual cloud. The XR Zone is a fully rigged and controlled location that can accommodate an unlimited variety of experiences.
This is done using modular physical accessories, digital sensors, full-size sets, 3D projections, lighting, sound effects, mechanical engineering, holographic techniques and with the support of the latest technologies.
Moreover, the flexibility of the Cross-Reality Zone means that it can also offer a very wide range of activities in the entertainment and leisure industry or serve as a test laboratory to explore topics of expanded applications, such as: human-machine interaction or empathy in the digital age and mass media.
Setting up and orchestrating Zone XR requires the collective know-how of our creative team [Three Golden Doors] in terms of architecture, concept art related to film production and video games, as well as all the engineering techniques used in scenographic shows. This work is done in close collaboration with artists and creators in the host country, local schools, and universities and with our partners as listed on their dedicated page..

THE EXPERIMENTAL FRAMEWORKS

The experimental settings of the Cross-Reality Zone are paths of adventure, wonder and emotion. By crossing them, the public discovers a breathtaking journey, it enters universes that allow it to experience and integrate physically and intellectually the knowledge delivered by the HUMANEUS Center.
The specificity of these extremely elaborate paths and the active participation required of the public naturally led us to name these adventurous paths: experimental frameworks, instead of designating them as: attractions. It is the students of the LEKTON school, the researchers of the ATOMOS laboratory as well as the artists, creators, and programmers of the EIDÔLON Studio who are responsible for developing and constantly evolving the different experimental frameworks of the HUMANEUS Center.

The experimental settings are specifically designed as spaces where the different forms of digital and analog entertainment presented to the public cohabit, interact, and complement each other through exceptional attractions. Here the bodies and objects are in real time, which allows fast interactions, collaborative games and immersions in groups on terrains of considerable dimensions with sensations of an intensity and a level still unmatched to this day.

The experimental settings also offer virtual itineraries of inaccessible or disappeared places, reconstructed historical sites [like Al Zubarah, Pompei, Angkor Vat, etc.] or finally places in the making, which potentially offers the public and specialists an infinite and ever renewed field of discoveries and deepening of knowledge.

Visitors’ reactions to the different experimental settings are constantly studied by the LEIBNIZ institute. This makes it possible to validate, modify or invalidate the artistic, mechanical, technological, and engineering innovations conceived and produced by Studio EIDÔLON for these different frames and tested in real time with the audience visiting the HUMANEUS Center.

Students at the LEKTON school and researchers at the ATOMOS laboratory also use experimental settings to test their knowledge and improve their teaching. The experimental frameworks most appreciated by the public can be adapted and offered to the international market for exploitation.

UNDERSTANDING THROUGH ACTION

The Cross-Reality Zone is the vast terrain of adventure, play and experience of the HUMANEUS Center; all that is intellectually thought out. thought and developed within the institute LEIBNIZ, is proposed to the public who visits the Center HUMANEUS within the Cross-Reality Zone. This constant interaction between the different elements forming the HUMANEUS Center creates the virtuous circle that is the basis of the Center’s operation.

A MODULAR SPACE

Finally, the Cross-Reality Zone can be expanded at leisure according to the wishes and expectations of the host country and thus offer an ever-increasing number of experimental settings [attractions]. Below is an example of a 1.5-to-30-hectare expansion of the HUMANEUS Center’s experimental park.

In this presentation, the enlargement of the Cross-Reality Zone is part of a rectangular structure. This is only a proposal, it must be understood that the dimensions, form and distribution of the area and the complex of the Center are totally flexible and adaptable according to the needs and demands of the nation hosting the HUMANEUS Center.

THREE EXAMPLES OF EXPERIMENTAL FRAMEWORKS

1- THE FOREST OF MYTHS

1- the forest of myths offers the public a course of adventures and trials, allowing him to discover the great founding principles of the origins and to confront the main mythological archetypes from the cultures that have spread throughout the world since the dawn of humanity.

The Myth Forest is a mythological journey. This itinerary leads visitors into worlds realized in real life, which use all the abilities of the advanced techniques of augmented reality, holography, stage illusions, mechanical engineering, and immersive technologies to immerse them in real-time adventures that also extend into the digital universe.
These courses allow the public to discover the oldest, most extraordinary and greatest of adventures, the Adventure of the Human !

2- THE LABYRINTH

The labyrinth is the gateway to the HUMANEUS Center. Realized on a human scale, largely underground, the labyrinth is an experimental framework deployed on three levels, exceptional by its scale, unique in the world and totally innovative.
From mechanical engineering to state-of-the-art immersive technologies, this experimental framework uses holographic techniques and scenic illusion to immerse the public in a journey interspersed with trials.
It is a completely rigged course, an adventure itinerary with hidden galleries, secret passages, walls that appear or disappear, corridors that change shape, doors that close and question.

The function of the Labyrinth is to bring the public to gain its passage towards the knowledge and knowledge that the HUMANEUS Center provides, it constitutes the path to the Museum Space and the Cross-Reality Zone.

To fulfill its mandate, the Labyrinth challenges and collaborates with the public who crosses it and discovers it, it is a multiform place in constant change, it offers an extraordinary initiatory journey to the visitors who experience it.
The labyrinth summarizes in the functioning and mission of the experimental frameworks of the HUMANEUS Center: to make the public realize that it can – through its analysis and reasoning – apprehend the environment in which it is immersed, to be able to understand it, analyze it, and ultimately control it.

Does the Human want access to knowledge, can it, is it an inherent right to his condition, must he fight to achieve knowledge? It is up to the visitor to discover it and the Labyrinth is there to help him find an answer to his questions.

Indeed, this attraction reacts according to the actions of the visitors who cross it, each course is unique, and it is up to the public who experiences the Labyrinth to understand in real time how to control it to overcome the obstacles it raises on its way.
The labyrinth is a privileged experimental framework for artificial intelligence research. Designed and directed by the artists, creators and programmers of Studio EIDÔLON and its international partners, the labyrinth is also a major place in the development and study of new models of movement of people evolving in spaces associating digital frames with physical frames.
The labyrinth is accessible in the Cloud according to the Twin Centers system. Its digital crossing is an extension of the physical crossing accessible in the HUMANEUS Center.

For the purposes of teaching, experience and to test concretely the teaching delivered by the Leibniz Institute, the adventurous journey of the labyrinth – practiced according to evolutionary scenarios different from those proposed to the audience of the Center HUMANEUS – is actively used by ATOMOS laboratory researchers and LEKTON school students.
The labyrinth sees its immersive technologies tested, developed and constantly updated.

3- THE ODYSSEY

The Odyssey is a fabulous journey, one of the most ambitious experimental settings that the HUMANEUS Center offers. The Odyssey allows the public to penetrate the depths of the human body to discover, explore and understand it in a completely new and unique way.

Intracorporeal Cruises

Evolving in the sophisticated decor of a highly technological launch base, visitors, after equipping themselves, enter futuristic nacelles and strap themselves to their seats. They then attend the breathtaking spectacle of their own miniaturization and observe the whole process that will see them rush into the very interior of the human body for a fantastic journey.

The vehicles and their passengers project themselves into an elaborate circuit [Ground Coaster] that crosses several levels of the HUMANEUS Center and is carried out at high speed, in a closed loop. It is a journey that physically takes the audience through a single space: the human body, from the extremities of the lower limbs to the top of the skull, through the organs, the heart, and the brain.
Like the other experimental frames of the HUMANEUS Center, the frame of the Odyssey is thought and realized by the artists, creators, and programmers of the production studio EIDÔLON and its international partners.
The Odyssey is constantly evolving, and the mechanical and immersive technologies used for its operation are regularly updated. The great journey of the Odyssey can also be experienced in its digital extension on the Hybrid Cloud [see next chapter: the Twin Centers], By immersive technologies, mechanical engineering, the strength of the decors realized on a human scale, the presence of actors and finally, through its own interaction with the visited setting, the public will be able to immerse itself in a unique way in the extraordinary adventure that is proposed to it.

The Odyssey takes the public on a fabulous journey into the future. Visitors will lift the veil of matter to contemplate an immense scheme, an architecture of bewildering complexity and be carried to the very center of a galaxy that seems terribly distant, although it is the very substance of those who discover it.
