The Emerging World of Immersive Experiences


From education, to retail, to entertainment, immersive experiences are becoming massively popular. Instead of just reading plaques at a museum or watching actors on stage, being able to interact and fully engage with an exhibit or performance creates a much more memorable and enjoyable experience for the consumer. In this blog we’ll explore some of the most popular immersive experiences, and how RJS Electronics can play a part.

1. Museums

Many museums and galleries now feature a variety of immersive experiences, such as hands-on activities and rides. Some museums also build incorporate soundscapes, lighting/set designs and even smells to create an immersive atmosphere.

2. Immersive Lighting

Something as simple as good lighting can help to set the scene and create an immersive experience. Technological developments mean that it is possible to create fully self-illuminated floors, fixtures and furniture, in addition to other LED lighting solutions and projections.


3. Immersive Events

Immersive events allow the audience to step into a new world (or often one that they are already familiar with from television, film or books). These events give guests the opportunity to take part in interactive theatrical performances, but also usually allow time to explore and interact with different elements themselves.


4. Escape Rooms

One of the most popular types of immersive experience of the last few years is Escape Rooms. A small team of people are locked in a room and must solve puzzles and unearth clues to find a way to escape before time runs out.
