NVIDIA worked with V Squared Labs to create a virtual reality experience at Comic-Con to promote the upcoming Heroes: Reborn TV show from NBC. The FlameWorks special effects library was used to create "two side-by-side portals where fans entered into the Renautas Corporation Evolved Human research facility found in the “Heroes Reborn” universe." Guests were scanned using a Microsoft Kinect to create images of them wielding fire and using their newfound pyro-kinetic abilities to battle a series of villains. V Squared Executive VP Alex Theory stated, "This type of augmented reality, interactive, kinetic experience has never been done before. Anywhere. It’s V Squared Labs’ first time at Comic-Con and we’re loving every minute of it. Especially seeing people’s reaction to our work."

that was pretty amasing

 

Gameworks gets a lot of hate but you cannot do the calculations needed for some of these effects cheaply.  Not if they are real time animations aware and interacting with the surroundings
