Today, educational centers are becoming popular and are opening in every city. Unfortunately, residents of regions and small towns do not have an opportunity to visit them.
The better idea is to develop something mobile initially: Mobile Center capable of traveling to visitors.
What do we have
Combining the opportunities of interactive 3D video and trailer-transformer one can present a large amount of educational information using confined space. Excursion party is organized in such a way that the group walks from a multimedia stands and displays to laboratory tables where experiments are conducted. Returning to the multimedia stand, visitors perceive the next topic.
The transformation of the trailer is crucial since the main element of the exposition is a sets of three interactive 55'' 3D monitors. For comfortable viewing of 3D content, visitors should be located at a distance of two diagonals from the monitor (9 ft or 3 m). Therefore, in a stationary position, the monitors are taken out of the trailer dimensions. It turned out to be convenient for displays, stands, and laboratory tables. In the transportation state, the trailer has dimensions of 13.6 x 2,55 meters (44’7’’ x 8’4’’) and for demonstrations the width increases by 1.30 m (4’3’’).

Using 3D interactive video, the Center offers education in an accessible and entertaining way. The education is interactive, and a person does not intrude on nature. Our principled policy is only “clean” non-intervention, and non-destructive technologies were used in the project. When we created the project, nothing was taken from wildlife. Sharks, jaws, all other exhibits are very skillfully made replicas. We do not have live exhibits, and this is our fundamental statement from the very beginning. But at the same time, visitors see a real picture of the life from the underwater world, and not artificially recreated, like in an aquarium. The gathered here (in virtual form) representatives of flora and fauna are rarely found underwater, and you hardly ever see them in an aquarium, they just cannot survive in captivity. However, some things are specially designed for the audience to try how do they work. For example, our favorite old diving pump greatly attracts kids to interact with the real stuff.
The core of multimedia 3D exposition is unique, and original video content shot and processed by the project team. The underwater equipment for the 3D video was also designed, developed, and built by our group.
One of the most popular exhibits.
