Abstract

This article, written for planetarium professionals, presents the experiences student participants have while using motion sensor and head-mounted displays in a planetarium and how these experiences extend and enhance immersive participation. Information is presented in tabular form and organized to examine planetaria with attached motion sensing device and head mounted display tools used either in or out of a planetarium. Considerations include information on the use of avatars, how to use creativity and perspective to enhance message, uses of design elements, physical aspects of each tool, and tips for program enhancement. Using this information, planetarium professionals can isolate distinctions between the tools that will help integrate these technologies into planetarium programs.
