HUMPBACKS OF HAWAII

The Humpback Whale is one of the worlds best loved creatures, yet surprisingly little is known about their behavior, communication or biology. This fully immersive installation reveals the secrets of these mysterious animals, breaks down the structure of their songs, and looks into their fascinating behavior. Stunning computer generated recreations of real underwater images and sounds take the viewer into the Humpback world like never before.

The technical core of this immersive experience is a novel 360°-3D image and sound simulator enabling to provide mind blowing presentations of novel depth and audio-visual attraction. Modern technology makes the dome appear as a transparent observation lounge, allowing the viewer to virtually dive with majestic whales in their natural environment

Affecting the viewer by its infinite vastness, its variety and its beauty, the “blue” universe off Maui will be experienced in a revolutionary and deeply emotional way.
