The ray-on concept is the result of an extensive research and development project on light and virtual immersion experimentation. Responding to mediation issues, this device is part of a complete and complex engineering reflection. Each component is part of a visit experience, in a concordance between equipment, interface and software.
Heritage sites that have been destroyed or altered over time remain complex for visitors to interpret. The lack of remains and images makes it difficult to project them into history and to understand the space. Imagined and conceived by on-situ, the ray-on concept proposes a new form of mediation, in a renewal of the gaze.
Installed on site, in front of the represented object, ray-on offers a new point of view of a building by recreating its original decor. ray-on superimposes the disappeared elements on the existing fragments in an immediate confrontation between past / "recomposed" past and present.
Through its design and conception, the device integrates perfectly into its environment. The interface can take several forms with an orientable screen in portrait or landscape. The devices are designed for continuous outdoor operation.
Thanks to the fastlight technology, the point of view evolves in accordance with the light of the site. The experience renews the gaze and draws past or future architectures in an environment captured in real time. The augmented reality viewpoint evolves with the site. Light conditions are continuously restored on the virtual model, creating tableaux vivants where reality and virtuality are intimately mixed in a confusing vision.
