THE INFINITE is a virtual reality journey aboard the International Space Station (ISS), through an out-of-this-world immersive experience that lasts 60 minutes blending the world’s largest free-roaming interactive and social VR experience, and contemporary art.
About the experience
THE INFINITE redefines the frontiers of large scale Location Based Experiences by creating the only VR journey in the world to provide such a large-scale multi-sensory experience that feels as real as floating in space. By developing VR experiences on a scale never before achieved, with the help of equally innovative partners, INFINITY EXPERIENCES created a new category of immersive installations made possible by, among other things, the avant-garde nature of the business model. This 12,000 square feet touring installation is designed to bring thousands of people into the ISS, pulsing more than 150 people per hour in a collective free-roaming zone.
Captured by astronauts, THE INFINITE gives you a glimpse at life in orbit as you watch footage from Emmy Award-winning Space Explorers: The ISS Experience, the largest production ever filmed in space, produced by Felix & Paul Studios in association with TIME Studios, including the first ever space walk in cinematic virtual reality. This project consists of more than 200 hours of 3D-360° immersive content filmed inside and outside the ISS and more than 16 hours of testimonials by astronauts and forms the narrative framework of THE INFINITE.
INFINITY EXPERIENCES, a joint venture founded in April 2020 between PHI Studio and Felix & Paul Studios, two major pioneers in the XR industry, whose endeavor is to create and distribute cutting-edge large-scale projects through spatial and immersive exhibitions and installations such as the ground-breaking Location-Based Experience, THE INFINITE.
