A lively underwater-world created by kids

Interactive multi-user wall projection which was developed for Sealife Sydney and Melbourne as a permanent installation. The underwater scene is fully interactive and fishes repel from users according to realistic swarming algorithms.

Visitors (mostly kids) can paint fish-templates and scan them at 2 touch-screen stations. The creations are then virtually dropped in the aquarium. Users can also send their creation via email.
