Multi touch interactive tables, screens and holographic interactive totems are the means used to create a dynamic and engaging experience.
An immersive interactive box allows you to "walk" in virtual landscapes.
The box is installed in a room built around the user, that can choose between different virtual scenarios displayed using a interactive floor projection. Visitors can select and move within these immersive environments.
The virtual navigation system, created with Eng. Enzo d'Annibale, is based on the interactive visualization of high-resolution panoramic photographs. Technicians took those pictures inside the cave river Bussento in collaboration with the CAI Speleological Group of Naples.
The Bussento river, after the artificial barrier of Lake Sabetta located upstream of the town center, disappear deep inside the earth.
The majestic hole locally known as La Rupe is 150 meters deep and it's located 2 km far from from the town, surrounded by a dense vegetation.
At the bottom of a huge and deep cave, happens one of the most important known and mysterious karst phenomena in Italy.
A path leads to the interior of this impressive gorge, passing from 400 to 230 meters of the bottom of muddy limestone slabs and to the imposing 25 meters high arch portal, where the river enters the cave with a torch and you can accompany for the first 500 meters or so, a huge cavity. Then flows deep beneath Mount Panel to resurface six kilometers further downstream at the natural Oasis of Morigerati.
The immersive box gives the unique experience of being in the middle of landscapes usually inaccessible and unexplored. Users can finally appreciate and share unknown natural wonders.
