The 18-metre long and over 3-metre high projection environment with motion tracking technology that allows visitors to interact with the animated sea creatures, putting their hands on the wall and seeing the rarely glimpsed creatures of those waters react to their gestures.
The Virtual Gulf Stream Aquarium
Thousands of virtual sardines amongst many other creatures display realistic and ever changing schooling behaviours based on computer algorithms devised by the software developers at Formula D.
The interactive River of Grass tunnel is a large room stuffed from floor to ceiling with technology to give kids and parents the experience of a fully animated interactive day in the Everglades, Florida’s precious wetland area.
The River of Grass interactive mixed reality experience
Using a total of 16 high definition projectors, directional audio and 7 networked motion tracking sensors, visitors become part of a life-sized immersive video game as they move about to play with a host of different animals. Targeted at preschool children, visitors can chase the otter, swat mosquitos, and dam up rivers
with artificial logs. And when night falls they search for the elusive Florida panther using virtual torches.
The Shark Senses virtual reality exhibit
The Shark Senses exhibit on level 3 of the museum is yet another innovation by Formula D that lets visitors dive into the experience of hunting as a shark. Using virtual reality technology, visitors are immersed in an interactive environment which provides audio, visual and sensory feedback that guides the experience and educate users on the senses sharks use to find their prey underwater.
