Capegate Shopping Centre will see the first ever dinosaur augmented reality exhibition in South Africa – DinosAlive Augmented Reality.

“The extremely successful Dinos Alive expo hosted at Capegate last year has been completely revamped into a super exciting range of augmented and virtual reality experiences”, says Capegate Marketing Manager, Amanda McCarthy.

Cutting-edge technology, along with educational elements will deliver an immersive dinosaur experience.

Kids and adults will be able to learn about the T-Rex, Veociraptor, Stegosauras, Triceratops and the Parasaurolophusa by interacting with these critters on a huge screen, as well as their phone or tablet, by gathering information from computer-generated Dinos.

The Dino’s Alive Augmented Reality expo opens at Capegate Shopping Centre in Brackenfell on December 6. The expo will offer 5 interactive augmented reality and virtual reality experiences, including a large interactive dino screen, virtual T-Rex experience, virtual reality tour and a dino edu-table.

A range of fun activities like online Dino games, colouring-in, dino rides and Dino selfie opportunities will also be on offer for the young and young at heart.
