Redondo Beach SEA Lab enhances nature exhibit with new technology

Los Angeles-area school kids who visit the Redondo Beach SEA Lab this year will get an extra lesson in the dangers of pollution, courtesy of environmental groups that have partnered to create a new exhibit about DDT and PCBs.

The exhibit, set up at a kiosk, will boost nature education with the latest technology, allowing kids to see and experience wildlife in 3D “Augmented Reality”. This new streaming video/3-D technology, supplied by the company Total Immersion, will make the eaglets once imperiled by DDT appear to be live and in front of the viewers, who can “hold” them.
