As part of Hull’s 2017 City of Culture celebrations, the team experienced a colossal mindboost as Marshmallow Laser Feast  presented a Colossal Wave…. and it was amazing. This is a mixed reality, fully immersive experience that left the monsters grinning, laughing, shouting, swimming and playing with their angler danglers…

What just happended?

It’s hard to explain exactly what we experienced but lets try. The experience is based over two locations, but the locations are connected by the actions that are happening in each, in real time.

In the inside location, you are immersed via virtual reality to shout and scream to make the ‘sound fruit’, yes ‘sound fruit. The more you grunt and grown and the pitch and tone of the noises you make affects the type of fruit you create.

Stay with us..

Then what?

This is where location two comes in. The sound fruit that is made then falls in the world you experience in the outside location. In this space again you are immersed in an under sea world, watching the fruit fall among other creatures.

Where does the wave come in?

The other twist is someone in the physical world, drops a bowling ball from the platform onto the gong below to create a ‘Colossal Wave’ which then overwhelms the virtual world!

It’s simple really…


We can’t tell you how much fun this is. You really have to experience it for yourselves, which fortunately you all can for free.

Check out the link and video and go with an open mind and not afraid to sing!

After gaining more than 20 years of experience in operational excellence in the hospitality and digital learning sectors, Caleb wanted to rid the world of dull ‘click next’ and ineffective elearning and solve the epidemic of uninspiring digital learning. Mindboost began back in 2016, when Caleb, saw a huge opportunity to create better quality digital learning content that connects with learners emotionally to encourage a desire to learn more. Caleb realised there was a lack of true understanding of an organisation’s culture and inner-working when learning providers were presented with a request from a client. So, the Mindboost team get under the cover of an organisation’s performance need and ultimately look to connect with learners emotionally. When a learner is connected emotionally, they tend to start believing in a change, this then generates a feeling and makes a greater impact within the organisation than just conveying information.
