T-Rex Revealed – The Augmented + Virtual Reality Experience

Welcome to the dinosaur exhibition with entirely virtual experience. In traditional dinosaur exhibitions, you may only see precious fossils, relevant illustrations and text. Today's advanced technology has made new presentation techniques possible, immersing visitors in a virtual world and even allowing them to interact with the featured elements of the exhibitions. "T-Rex Revealed – The Augmented + Virtual Reality Experience" is the first exhibition that integrates cutting-edge technology with the latest scientific achievements. Making use of Augmented Reality (AR) technology, the exhibition creates an immersive and adventurous experience, taking visitors into the vivid world of dinosaurs.

Tyrannosaurus was the most ferocious carnivorous dinosaur and is certainly the most famous. It had serrated teeth as sharp as a steak knife, and its crushing bite was about 3 times stronger than that of a crocodile which has the most powerful bite among animals today. It was a matchless monster in the prehistoric world. Imagine how shocking it would be if a Tyrannosaurus was chasing its prey just in front of you! In this exhibition, various interactive exhibits employing the latest AR technology and video programmes take you back to the prehistoric world 66 million years ago, enabling you to have a close encounter with the Tyrannosaurus, and learn about its body structure, living habits, how it took care of its young, and the features that made it the top predator. There is also a Virtual Reality (VR) technology-based exhibit, which allows visitors to fly with pterosaurs through ancient forests to look for dinosaur footprints.
