This fall, the Philadelphia Opera Company will debut its “Virtual Opera” that will allow viewers to watch the opera from the perspective of a chorus member. It’s one of three projects that were funded by Drexel University’s ExCITe Center‘s “Seed Projects” grants.

The ExCITe Center is now looking for more multi-disciplinary research project proposals. It’ll fund each project up to $6,500. Winners will also get to use the ExCITe Center to work on their projects.

Get more details and apply here by July 1.

The only hard and fast requirement is that the project is a “multi-disciplinary,” so that leaves the door wide open. Check out last year’s winners, which include a game that can act as physical therapy for children with cerebral palsy and a “sonic landscape” for Philly, for inspiration.

Companies: Drexel University / ExCITe Center / Philadelphia Opera Company
