Two Bit Circus

We are Two Bit Circus, a band of mad scientists, roboticists, visual artists and storytellers.  Our capabilities weave multiple disciplines into a breathtaking fusion of science, technology and creativity.

We truly live at the intersection of technology and spectacle. We engineer entertainment that is imaginative and interactive, blurring the line between physical and digital playgrounds to create a new world of social amusement.

Based in Los Angeles, our interdisciplinary team of artists, engineers, and entrepreneurs develop spectacular productions with the goal to inspire, engage, and reinvent the way people play.

Capabilities
  • Immersive Experiences: Magic mirrors that create truly interactive augmented reality experiences. Live-action, social immersive “story rooms” that assess your super hero powers. Giant ball pits that use motion-sensing, reactive projection mapping. A desk lamp that lights via visualizations of live satellite uplinks/downlinks from NASA.  Organic tequila clouds that rain, well, tequila. We combine science and magic into spectacular activations. Have an idea that is impossible? Need an experience that is awesome? Let’s chat.
  • Events & Productions: We produce our own events as well as those of are partners with mind-blowing games, interactive amusement, stage shows, aerialists, food and more.We entertain at scale! Our events fill venues measuring hundreds of thousands of square feet, entertaining tens of thousands of attendees.
