Museum Alive with David Attenborough

Through the use of Mixed Reality, bring back to life some of the stunning extinct animals that once roamed our Earth, all guided by natural history legend Sir David Attenborough

Released : 2019

Runtime : 5 Minutes

Platform : Magic Leap One and Mobile

Bring prehistoric animals back to life with the Magic Leap One headset. See a Dimorphodon fly out of your window or discover what lies under the skin of a fearsome Sabre-toothed tiger.

Museum Alive uses the power of spatial computing, plane detection, and hand tracking to bring ultra-realistic, scientifically accurate animations of extinct animals into the real world. Reach inside interactive bubbles to activate long lost creatures and see them move around the room in 3D. While you discover the story for yourself, a compelling narration from Sir David Attenborough gives you a detailed understanding of the various animals and timelines.

This experience received two award nominations at Raindance Film Festival in October 2019 under the name Rise of Animals. It was the first-ever Mixed Reality experience included in the European film festival.
