The Vostok 1 Collective Fishery Farm booth will offer guests an opportunity to take a trip into virtual reality. Using modern audio-visual technology, visitors will find themselves plunging deep into the ocean inside a bathyscaphe – a journey that can also be viewed on a big screen.
Representatives of fishing industry science will also use multimedia technologies and equipment that create a virtual reality environment in their expositions. The Russian Research Institute of Fishery and Oceanography (VNIRO) will give an interactive 3D presentation titled 12 Centuries of Fishing in Russia. Using special VR-glasses, guests will be able to visit a future exhibition, learn more about exhibits, watch videos, and listen to an audio guide.
The 12 Centuries of Fishing in Russia presentation, which was created with the support of the Federal Agency for Fisheries, is an interactive multimedia exposition that consists of sections that are split up by historical and thematic periods and united by a single storyline. Visitors will take a trip from the start of fishing way back in the times of Rus to the present day and learn about its significance for the development of the country and its people, fishing and processing technology methods, historical and contemporary figures, and prospects in the 21st century.
