The Grammy Museum’s first major foray into mixed-reality allows visitors to get up close and personal with the Backstreet Boys — in hologram form
As part of of the nostalgia-inducing exhibition “Backstreet Boys: The Experience,” a mini-hologram of the band will be on display — and interact with guests — from April 10 to Sept. 2.
The hologram, created in conjunction with Los Angeles-based interactive experience company Vntana, turns users into projections themselves, placing their live image on display alongside that of the band. The 3-D images are conjured between two horizontal frames and can instantly capture an image of a Grammy Museum guest.
In hologram form, Carter, Littrell, Kevin Richardson, AJ McLean and Howie Dorough are portrayed as they are now — middle-aged men preparing to embark on a tour in support of their album “DNA” rather than twentysomethings performing under the pressure of peak fandom. The trek will follow the conclusion a two-year Planet Hollywood residency.
