Title: INTEGRATING AUDIENCE PARTICIPATION CONTENT INTO VIRTUAL REALITY CONTENT
Abstract:
A method and system for integrating audience participation content into virtual reality (VR) content presented by head mounted display (HMD) of an HMD user is provided. The method includes providing a VR scene to the HMD of an HMD user and receiving indications from one or more spectator devices of one or more spectators that correspond to requests for audience participation content for participating in the VR scene. The method and system is capable of sending audience participation content to the spectator devices for enabling spectator interactivity with the audience participation content via respective spectator devices. The method and system provided also enables a receiving of the spectator input, which may then be subsequently integrated into the VR scene of the HMD.
