The Save Our Seas Shark Education Centre, situated in Kalk Bay, South Africa, is working hard to debunk the myths that surround sharks. To this end, our team of product designers, programmers, engineers and game designers custom-built a virtual reality Shark Senses experience along with a Shark Explorer touch table and Marine Life telephone.
The Shark Senses VR exhibit allows visitors to navigate an underwater world and experience first-hand what it would be like to be a shark hunting its prey. Visitors experience the shark’s sense of hearing with speakers built into the head while fans are used to stimulate their sense of smell. The mounted display also vibrates to mimic the electromagnetic field which sharks can detect when they are very close to their prey.
