Technodramatists harness the power of emerging technologies (augmented reality, artificial intelligence motion capture etc), creating performance tools that vastly expand the boundaries of the theatrical experience.

WeARlive brings professional quality motion capture into the hands of artists and performers without the prohibitive cost and cumbersome hardware of traditional solutions.

Using only an iPhone actors, storytellers and keynote speakers can control and sync their facial movements to 3d avatars.

As the first realtime face-sync application designed specifically for live performance, weARlive provides a fully customizable experience, featuring 3d models, interactive backgrounds and special effects, all of which can be controlled by the user’s facial expressions alone.

Theater makers and technicians can enhance reality, create new modes of storytelling and redefine the audience experience.

3d images, animations and sounds are overlaid on top of performers on stage, allowing audience members—when they peer through their devices—to see and interact with the digital and real-world simultaneously.
