Europe 2050 – Following a cascade of ecological crises, our world has been deprived of healthy ecosystems and wealthy flora. Amidst this dystopian landscape lies a lavish green beacon of hope: Dr. Beatrice Kukac’s Pollinator Park -a futuristic farm, a safe haven for pollinating insects and an eye-opener for its visitors.
Pollinator Park is a crossover between a zoo, theme park, an interactive museum and a crystal ball: fun, educational and emotionally engaging. As a park visitor in 2050, unravel the story of its founder Beatrice Kukac, try your hand at pollination, shop for grocery shopping in a pollinator-deprived world, rediscover nature’s perfection and find out how you can help protect it in the real world.
The European Commission's virtual Pollinator Park was built in collaboration with ‘archiobiotect’ Vincent Callebaut, in his signature eco-futuristic style.
Step into this beautiful virtual reality about the ugly future we face without pollinating insects!
Well Done and Educational. I'm always leery of any ecological/environmental messages; the gist is often a thinly-veiled international scheme to kill off half of humanity, ostensibly to save some grub from extinction. I didn't get that vibe from this application. Admittedly, I skimmed through some of the stuff and, thus, may have missed evidence of a nefarious secret plot by our heartless reptilian overlords. From what I saw, however, it was an interesting and well-implemented interactive presentation about the pollination process, its implications for mankind, and what individuals can do to help facilitate pollination in their own backyards. It was creatively presented as a tour of a futuristic pollination center. The visuals, animations, etc. were all decent. Overall, it was well optimized, but I experienced intermittent stutters (pretty jarring in VR) when clicking on certain things or moving to new areas of the map. I also had occasional problems teleporting. Some interactive parts of the map appear to be set up to snap the user to a specific point. I sometimes found myself unintentionally ending up in those points while trying to go elsewhere. Despite these hiccups, I really enjoyed Pollinator Park and would recommend it.
Wonderful experience, which makes u act! Wow, so blessed with such an amazing production, bringing 6DoF into VR storytelling is amazing. You can walk and discover all areas at your own pace, you start to understand the importance of various flying insects, not just bees for our natures ecosystem and I started acting buy buying hives for bees directly. I cannot imagine eating space food in 2080 and didn't realize that 1/3rd of our food chain relies on pollinators... WOW THANKS FOR INFORMING ME, and hopefully many others on this pleasant experience about some facts we were not thought in school.
Good museum. The positive: It is well done. Good music
The negative: I wish I could skip the intro and that the application exit automatically at the end. I also wish more explications on the different species of bees, a map where you can find each species, the anatomy of a bee, the various job of bees, etc... Finally, the exhibit with price tag was quite boring as the only one working was the toilet paper. I could not figure out how to activate and see the price of other food. The quiz should explain the answers too.
Great educational app. Played on Quest 1. Good graphics and educational app about the importance of bees for this planet. I love the details like taking a flower and seeing an insect flying to it. Very well done. Question to the developer: Could you add a seated option ?
Excellent presentation and educational. First, thank you development team of the great VR learning app. I enjoyed it. Please continue to add more content and functions (able to zoom to view objects closer). Camera take photos and write note if possible. Thank you
Stunning and impactful. Visually stunning and technically impressive on the Quest 1. You're guided through the (beautifully narated) story even though you have the feeling you're exploring. And... I've learned the perfect excuse not to mow the lawn.
すごいですね。 細部までよくできています。 しかも、無料で。
wow quite impressive. The detals are great, its just done really well, and its free.
