Bushplane Centre in Sault Ste. Marie testing out new 3D head sets
SAULT STE. MARIE -- The Canadian Bushplane Heritage Centre is testing out 20 new 3D headsets for a Belgian company. Over the next four weeks, guests will be able to watch three short videos to experience the sights and sounds from high in the sky to deep under water.
“It’s something really exceptional. Different for us to bring in and it showcases some of the kind of new technologies that we would like to eventually work into some of our exhibits here” Said Brian Bubinas, curator for the Canadian Bushplane Heritage Centre.
One film takes viewers under water, a second takes people high into the sky flying around the world to international landmarks and the third is an exhilarating roller coaster ride.
“It’s pretty wild. If you are a little nervous on roller coasters you gonna be closing your eyes a few times like I did. It’s very realistic it’s exciting.” Said Edie Suriano, staff member at the Canadian Bushplane Heritage Centre.
Each guest will be given a disposable face mask that will limit the amount of contact the 3D mask has to ones face. After each use, the headset will be cleaned before being used again.
The 3D feature starts August 12th. The show runs every hour.
