Experience the Arctic thrill at Seawoods Grand Central Mall
Seawoods Grand Central (SGC) Mall opened its doors to Navi Mumbaikars on March 23, 2017. Since then, the action has continued at the Ultimate Fashion Destination of Navi Mumbai. Keeping up with their promise of delivering an unparalleled experience to its patrons in Navi Mumbai, SGC Mall has brought to life the polar bear, whales, penguins and orcas from the Arctic through an augmented reality show. This unique state-of-the-art augmented reality show will continue until May 7, 2017 on the second floor of the mall.
Augmented reality (AR) is a technology that gives a real-life experience through computerized graphics, sounds and images. The viewer feels part of the virtual world displayed on screen and yet the distinction between the real and virtual is obvious.
The display, introduced at SGC Mall early this month, gives a spectacular experience of Orca whales emerging out of glacier waters of the Arctic Ocean. There is a white polar bear coming out of the water and growling. The penguins come in flocks and dance around endearingly. This is a sight to behold for both kids and adults alike.
