REVERIE in English refers to an imaginary representation of reality created to help realize a desire.
It also means a fantastic and visionary idea, an abstracted state of absorption or “immersion”, absentminded dreaming while awake.

The Concept


Friday nights and field trips will never be the same again!

It’s Friday night, you’re exhausted after a long week in the office. You’re not going to leave the house so you could watch TV, or spend a few hours catching up on your social networks. But, why spend time watching a screen when you could immerse yourself into a 3D online environment which lets you interact with friends and share common experiences together, in real time, without having to leave home?

REVERIE is a safe, collaborative, online environment where users can meet, socialise and share experiences using equipment they already have at home – such as 3D TV and Microsoft 3D Kinect – along with a range of content creation tools built for the platform. The possibilities are endless – take your Geography class on a field trip; make an important presentation; attend a distance learning class; play the lead character in your favourite film – then invite your friends to join you using their existing social networking channels. Friday nights and field trips will never be the same again!
