ICAMSURF – THE EXPERIENTIAL EVENT ENTERTAINMENT PORTABLE SYSTEM
Surf Simulator Events introduces a new computerized system that allows anyone to surf on a full sized Virtual
Surfboard on dryland... or use a Magic Carpet to simulate surfing a continuous 30 foot wave anywhere and anyplace in the world for a trade show, corporate event or promotion - indoors or outdoors without getting wet.
iCamSurfing is the new interactive dryland surf experience that requires fun, physical participation using standard webcams. A PC webcam running windows 7 / 8 can now read complex body movements for playing a variety of interactive games.
A revolution to the interactive game market is being introduced by Experiential Event Entertainment called iCAMSURF – THE PORTABLE SURF PARTY - which simplifies the deployment of entertainment events worldwide. More than 15 years ago, the company introduced the world's first electronic, waterless, surfboard simulator system for dry land. The launch of their new iCAMSURF software series combines the power of successful 3D gaming along with Extreme Reality's webcam Sensing engine. The webcam software engine maximizes the interactive on screen gameplay while providing the choice of using a real surfboard or simple surfboard shaped rug. It is like standing in front of a security camera - any move you make is sensed and interpreted into riding a huge Hawaiian Waimea Wave on any video screen or controlling a soccer ball or car race with simple body movements.
In addition, the proprietary software can be quickly customized. For example, project a continuous, gigantic 30 foot virtual tube wave decorated with corporate logos, banners and branded coins. The “surfer wannabe” stands in front of the webcam and large monitor and strikes surfer-like poses and movements on dry land to control all the surfing action in the virtual wave tube. The portable and quick deployment iCAMSURF technology offers a broader, new and exciting entertainment event for any aged guests at retail operations, trade shows, marketing / promotion, restaurants, hotels or parties all within a smaller footprint.
iCAMSURF technology will be used for corporate events, trade shows, fund raisers interactive museum exhibits, hotels and retailers that demand standalone interactive displays where manpower is a costly resource.
The iCAMSURF motion control recognition system is powered by well-known software company Extreme Reality, the only company to provide full-body, software-based, 3D motion analysis and control to any computing device via a standard web camera. As a valued partner, Extreme Reality was integral to development of the unique surfing game as it provided the robust engine that harnessed the power of the existing onboard web cam of any laptop or external web cam turning it into virtual, hands-free controller for PC games.
Surf Simulator Entertainment Events plans to offer the surfing system as a licensed software for entertainment events to engage guests at corporate events, trade shows and other promotional activities. Business operators, restaurants, bars and events as well as business owners can utilize the system as an addition to their present promotional tools.
