New media entertainment company, d'strict, is pushing the concept of virtual reality to a new level with the "Live Park 4D World Tour," a new theme park that recently opened in South Korea. The park is comprised of 65 different attractions over a 10,000 sq. foot (929 sq m) space, which houses several large interactive displays as well as some installation art pieces.

Visitors wear RFID wristbands that allow the displays to identify them, while Kinect sensors detect their movements, voices, and faces. Many of the attractions center around having users create an avatar of themselves that they can interact with and take on a virtual adventure, which is portrayed using 3D video, holograms, and augmented reality technology.

The Live Park 4D World Tour is currently open at the KINTEX in Ilsan, Gyeonggi-do, Korea. So far, it's been successful enough to prompt d'strict to extend the time the park will remain open to the public. The company is also now planning to create more permanent installations in China and Singapore and hopes to expand the park overseas.
