A rear projection dome system has been patented, comprising a front screen section, a rear screen section, and a top screen section. The top screen section is mounted onto the front screen section, creating a conical joint interface for uninterrupted projections between the sections. The dome allows for seamless side joints when the rear screen section is moved between open and closed positions, enabling users to enter the dome while maintaining projection integrity. Additionally, the top screen section can be mounted onto the rear screen section, further enhancing the uninterrupted projection capabilities of the dome.

Furthermore, the patented dome system includes a method for operating the rear projection dome, involving projecting overlapping projections between the front and rear screen sections. The method also includes moving the rear screen section between open and closed positions, installing the front and rear screen sections in place, and mounting the top screen section onto the front screen section. The method ensures seamless side joints for uninterrupted projections and involves projecting images on the screen sections using a plurality of projectors. Overall, the patented dome system and method provide a unique solution for creating immersive projection environments with seamless transitions between different screen sections.
