The Dive Cage

The Figment team created the unique, award-winning: ‘Interactive Dive Cage’. The dive cage features over 100 photo‐realistic CG animations and 40 interactive activities. Up to 20 people are immersed in a 270° view of the ocean. They interact with fully animated CGI animals including: Great White Sharks, Dolphins and Manta‐rays. Visitors explore over 2 hours of content-rich interactives by controlling 1 wall of the cage. However, a unique feature of the dive cage is that, at set intervals, visitors enjoy a shared experience as the cage is swallowed by a blue whale!

The project won several awards including:

Museums & Heritage Awards for Excellence 2007
Winner: Best Use of Technology
British Interactive Media Awards 2007 Winner: Innovation Award
