THE LIVING ROOM — Necessity is the mother of invention, and there’s certainly been a lot of invention since March when it comes to entertaining children.
Recreating movie scenes and theme park rides has been a consistent occurrence if you trust the amount of videos as seen on the internet. But what about creating an experience in a different era, a different land — a land before time, if you will.
One dad did just that for his young daughter.
Using a short-throw projector and a screen, he created an immersive Jurassic living room for his young daughter. To make the experience all-enveloping and mesmeric, the screen is outside, leaving no space between the windows and the real world.
According to the video description, dad Lyle Coram is playing the Dinosaur Encounter from AtmosFX to entertain and maybe even educate his daughter. Heck, he probably built it mostly to entertain himself, watching dinosaurs watching him.
It’s not in the cards for every parent to give this level of entertainment and immersive experience for their children, but lucky for us, we have the internet where we can watch these types of inventive videos with our families.
