Discovery of a New World

There are 72, freely mobile, interactive information robots that find their way around the hall through radio control.

Each one of the robots is equipped with a Digital Video Machine which is the source of the projection from the inside of the robot.

They roll around the hall, communicate with the visitors and meet with other robots in small swarms again and again to regroup.

Hundreds of Alcorn McBride products were used

Rainforest House

In a project outside the EXPO, the "Rainforest House" in the Manor-houses Gardens uses a Digital Video Machine DVM2 to play an animated film. The film is synchronized with a hydraulic platform on which the spectators are seated; this provides a more realistic experience. 


Lithuanian Pavilion

To obtain the realistic flight experience 7 Digital Video Machines (DVM2), 4 DVM2L's, and one Digital Audio Machine were used. The central topic of the Lithuanian exhibition is "The Flight". The desires and ideals of Lithuanians are learned through audio and video on this virtual flight through the past, present and future of the country.

Austrian Pavilion

At the largest pavilion, Austria introduced itself as a country of art under the title "Experience Austria" and presented its most beautiful art, cultural, and economic treasures. The equipment required for the multimedia presentation was 23 Digitally Video Machines (DVM2) and one Digital Binloop DBS 24.
