The River of Grass is a large room stuffed from floor to ceiling with tech to give kids and parents the experience of a fully animated interactive day in the Everglades, Florida’s precious wetland area. Using 16 HD projectors, directional audio and 7 networked motion tracking sensors, visitors become part of a life-sized immersive exhibit as they move and 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. When night falls they search for the elusive Florida panther using virtual torches.
