Mega Lifelike Experience: Shanghai World Expo, Online

By Kate

Imagine 100 million people visiting the Shanghai World Expo, online, exploring and interacting with the stands and content, touring the virtual twin of its 5.28 square kilometers exposition park.

Years after the Expo has broken down its stands and physically disappeared.

The Expo 2010 will take 10 days for you to physically experience, but online you can visit at your leisure and eliminate cueing. Hmmm. Sounds good to me.

I didn’t realize what a big deal it is until I watched this video. Even if you’re the least bit curious, it’s worth a watch all the way through.

The online Expo is being built with help from our 3DVIA Virtools technology, but no matter the technology, it’s just plain cool.

You can find more information in the Dassault Systèmes announcement. There’s an official Expo URL, but it’s not active yet, so the video is your best bet.

So, do you think you’ll go to the Expo?

Best,

Kate
