Portal xR is the brainchild of XiteLabs, Motorized Precision, All of It Now, and Evolve Media Group. This collaboration was truly an innovative achievement in the world of xR. Portal xR was the first to use the Kira 2.0 Robotic Arm in conjunction with an xR stage.  The Kira 2.0 allowed Xitelabs to push the limits of xR with the acrobatic moves that can only be achieved by a robotic arm. Kira 2.0’s camera was tracked to the virtual environment, which produced some spectacular results on the xR stage.

Portal xR experiments with the movement of the robotic arm, as well as the on-stage dancer. The goal of the collaboration was to display the awesome effects the Kira 2.0 would have in an xR evironment.

Unreal Engine was used to create the virtual environment, and the Kira was filmed in action using the camera and talent tracking system from stYpe.
