We live in a changing world. Technology has many surprises in store for us. And new experiences, as new as disturbing. Just as we have abandoned traditional video media for the benefit of Blueray, so the role of the viewer in the cinema is changing rapidly! A new page of the film industry is opening, and it's up to us to write it ...

Three young people passionate about cinema and new technologies. Three young innovators for a new product dedicated to the very promising "virtual reality", a fascinating facet of our reality of tomorrow.

The principle is as simple as it is brilliant: each spectator, installed in a swivel seat specially developed for this cinematographic experience, is also equipped with a "virtual reality-headset". With this improved helmet, it instantly and literally plunges 360 ° into new landscapes and is projected in the middle of the action.

"Sonar 360" makes us float in space, and "Witness 360: 7/7" puts us in the shoes of Jacky Putnam to live closer to the attacks on the London underground.
