EcoExplorer Touch Screen Game


EcoExplorer is an educational touch screen game which challenges users to discover featured animals or plants within animated, photorealistic representations of ecosystems and habitats.

This interactive exhibition idea has previously been deployed for “South African Frogs” at Two Oceans Aquarium in Cape Town, but naturally can be customised for any ecosystem and species. For example: Whales around the World, Snakes in Africa, or Micro-Organisms on a Leaf.

Against the background of an animated 3D impression of the relevant ecosystem, users activate different habitats by touching them, thus revealing 360-degree panoramic views of a given area.

Now, the challenge is for the user to discover hidden icons linked to the featured species. When an animal or plant icon has been touched, the application reveals :
  • the species’ name and size,
  • a description and images,
  • video clips and sounds if applicable.
A number of threat alerts activate at random and freeze all other interaction with the screen. It is now up to the user to act quickly and touch the correct image corresponding to a multiple-choice questionnaire on common threats to the specific ecosystem or species.

The application can also be customised for a number of different hardware platforms from iPads to large-scale multi-touch walls.
