Visit the Interactive Zone

Running alongside this year's exhibition we have introduced the 'Interactive zone' which will allow delegates to explore a variety of games and experiences.

Hold The World

Go behind the scenes of the Natural History Museum
Hold the World, commissioned by Sky VR Studio, transports you behind the scenes of the Natural History Museum and take you on a guided tour of collection highlights with the world's foremost natural history broadcaster, Sir David Attenborough.
Users are instantly transported to areas of the Museum that are usually closed to the public.

Get "hands-on"
Participants will be able to virtually pick up, hold, enlarge and bring to life these specimens in a way that until now had never been possible.

Arca’s Path

Tricked by a wicked android witch, you must seek a path home and escape the simulated world of Arca. Fully integrated across all major VR platforms, with intuitive hands-free gameplay, Arca’s Path is an atmospheric VR gaming experience. Head tracking VR technology uses your gaze to intuitively lead the character’s sphere with skill and precision. Find your path through 25 levels of stunning crystalline landscapes and experience the chilled experimental electro music of Ninja Tunes artist, Raffertie. Enter the simulated world of Arca and unlock the truth, in a truly immersive VR gaming experience.  


Orbu is a physical Augmented Reality game with engaging slingshot mechanics, made with ARKit. Transform your surroundings and embark on a journey through ever-changing seasons. Discover and collect new Orbu creatures such as Tanuki (raccoon dog), Noko (turtle) and Konkon (fox) – and guide them through a series of obstacle courses. Find butterflies and feed fish along the way. Move around the play area to discover new secrets and get up close and personal to the creatures. Where will Orbu take you?
