ADULT SWIM RICKFLECTOR
A first-of-its-kind experience that combined body pose tracking and facial expression tracking to transport Comic-Con attendees into the world of Rick and Morty.
We partnered with Adult Swim to bring their show Rick and Morty to life for Comic-Con 2019. Knowing how much fans love the characters in this show, we wanted to give Con attendees a chance to interact with them in Rick and Morty’s world. So we created the Rickflector, a pod where people can trans-portal into the Multiverse alongside Pickle Rick, Mr. Poopybutthole, Cromulons, and more. Before entering the Rickflector, visitors customized a character based off their own likeness to create an avatar. Once they got inside, their avatar's DNA was scrambled with that of a popular Rick and Morty character, which came to life in one of five games set in the world of the show. This was the first time that real-time body pose tracking was used in tandem with cutting-edge facial expression tracking, allowing people to literally embody their custom characters. In other words, they saw their own real life movements and expressions mirrored in the world of the game. The Rickflector was a huge success at the event, with tons of love from fans and the creators of the show.
