A unique interactive media piece, titled Virtual Aquarium, is a rear projection system which provides the visitor an idea of what exists just below the water of the Ohio river. Selecting one of ten touchable items, from various fish and turtles to discarded trash, we see the underwater life of the river and the effect humans can have on their environment.
CED developed and integrated a unique system to enhance the experience for visitors with physical disabilities. The system was designed utilizing a handheld personal device tied to location savvy software, giving unsighted persons the ability to hear a description of the experience as they make their way through the center. For hearing impaired visitors, the system detects their location and displays captions on their portable device, while also providing amplified audio and interconnection to their hearing and/or cochlear devices.
