Hong Kong’s Ocean Park has just announced an exciting, and never-before-heard attraction on theme parks: The Explorer R Experience Hub. It is a high-tech attraction that provides children with an interactive experience where they can create their own avatar and pets for added excitement.
One of the main purposes of this hub is to spark children’s interest in learning about science, technology, mathematics, engineering, and arts. The new attraction also aims to enhance their sense of critical thinking, dialogue, inquiry, and practical learning.
Experience Hub is filled with advanced technologies never seen before on usual attractions like image recognition, gesture mapping, and an indoor positioning watch that can track children’s position in the virtual world.
The genius behind the attraction
The Explorer R Experience Hub was designed by Immersive One, a team of experts with long experiences in the field of gaming, blockchain, and creative media technology. But the most exciting part of this project is that Experience Hub is just a small part of the team’s grander plans in the future.
Even with the new attraction’s advanced technologies, the team considers it as a mere prototype compared to the upcoming big projects on its list.
According to Immersive One’s CEO Denny Wong, Experience Hub is meant to prepare children for a more immersive experience in the future. Wong said that in their next project, children can learn more about blockchain technology, crypto-economics and turn avatars into NFTs.
Tickets are so yesterday
Earning tickets to claim prizes will be a thing of the past. In decentralized theme parks like Experience Hub, what will children earn are digital currencies (instead of tickets) and create NFTs (instead of claiming physical prizes).
