Join David Attenborough as he travels back through time to see the first glimmerings of life on earth, and dive into a breathtaking underwater tour of the Great Barrier Reef, all using the latest in virtual reality (VR) technology.
In David Attenborough’s First Life VR, visitors travel back 540 million years as Attenborough reveals the dawn of life on Earth and introduces us to its earliest inhabitants, exploring ancient oceans and interacting with extinct sea creatures. Long-extinct animals such as the whimsically built Opabinia, the fearsome-looking Anomalocaris and the spiny, worm-like Hallucigenia will be brought vividly alive in a fully immersive VR experience.
Great Barrier Reef
David Attenborough’s Great Barrier Reef Dive VR uses real-world footage and pioneering technologies to shed new light on this magnificent habitat. Visitors will take a 360-degree, VR tour through the vibrant coral, darting fish and majestic sharks in this great natural wonder of the world. In a state-of-the-art submersible, Attenborough guides us through the reef.
Visitors come face-to-face with the diversity and abundance of the Great Barrier Reef, and see how researchers are using historic corals to predict how the reef will react to environmental changes. This is a feast for the senses!
Thursday – Sunday until Sunday 16th April 2017.
