Shark Week exhibit opens at Dubai Mall
21 July, 2016
A new shark exhibit opened at The Dubai Mall on 21 July to give residents a chance to know more about these sea creatures that are being killed and finned by the millions every year. The ‘Discovery Shark Week’ exhibit is a hybrid of digital technology and a living aquarium that features the “shark heroes” of Discovery Channel’s Shark Week show. The entrance to the exhibit is a computer-generated imagery (CGI) of a shark cage that divers use underwater to get close to sharks. The interactive digital shark cage, which consists of LED screens, gives guests a chance to “be surrounded” by Great White sharks, but obviously only through CGI. Guests can learn more about the shark’s biology using the information panels spread throughout the exhibit.
