Last May 5 in Montreal, the AQUA multisensory experience received a NUMIX award of excellence in the Business Production – Museums category. ONE DROP is especially proud of this distinction that highlights AQUA’s technological feats.
Needless to say, the challenges that AQUA’s production team encountered when creating AQUA were numerous. The 360º projections come to mind, as well as the interactive simulation of water’s movement that required 27 computers, 10 projectors… and the hundreds of billions of neurons of 3 computer engineers. You can find out more on the technology used for the experience by visiting the AQUA section.
The NUMIX contest is an initiative of the Regroupement des producteurs multimédia, an association of multimedia producers whose mission is to reward the creativity of Quebecers in the burgeoning field of multimedia production.
Congratulations to all those who took part in this colossal undertaking.
AQUA will be at the Canadian Museum of Nature in Ottawa until September 6. Come live a multisensory—and inspiring—experience!
