Virtual Arctic Expedition is a virtual reality experience involving up to 8 people at the same time. The users are immersed together in the same virtual environment. They find themselves in the Arctic seabed where everyone embodies a scuba diver.

This 15-minutes journey makes the users travel in time through 4 different scenes:

  • The base, a tutorial which explain how to interact with the virtual world;
  • the sector 1 in 1950, a specific spot in the Arctic, 20 meters below the sea level;
  • the time capsule which teleports the users 150 years later;
  • the sector 1 in 2100, a projection of what the Arctic see could look like in a near future.

Meet whales, belugas, orcas and giant jellyfishes in Virtual Arctic Expedition. Discover the Arctic seabed and learn what is at stakes today in this environment.
