INTERACTIVE VIRTUAL WORLD
This is the most advanced exhibit in this exhibition: Interactive 3D Projection-based virtual world. We first build a 3D mountain model (we hired a architect to help us to build that model) in white colour for easy projecting a motion video. The motion videos need to be produced based on the curvature of the model (OMG with unlimited fine tuning) to create such nice effect. Then we will project a forest top view on the 3D ground to have better effect.
It consists of a 3D landscape model, a table with built-in object detection sensors, tablet display, dinosaur models and the animation contents. We applied our own visual object detection system, self-designed game engine and 3D projection content, works with a Coolux system provided by Hong Kong Science Museum for part of the display in this exhibits. When users put Dino Model into the detecting area, the 3D dinosaur will appear on the 3D landscape model and a 3D model of that dinosaur will display on the tablet. Player can experience putting a dinosaur into the natural environment.

Legends of the Giant Dinosaurs Exhibition
The Hong Kong Science Museum had organized a number of dinosaur exhibitions and all were well received. The “Legends of the Giant Dinosaurs” Exhibition will be the largest ever presented in Hong Kong. This exhibition is solely sponsored by the Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust. In this exhibition, new technologies and presentation methods will be used to introduce the largest Titanosaurus and the latest studies on dinosaurs. Occupying an area of 2,500 sq. metres, the exhibition is divided into four areas with different themes. It is opened from 8 November, 2013 to 9 April, 2014.
