Be a Trout

Headerwaters River Journey (Winter Park, Colorado)

How to relate to the challenges trout face in an unpredictable water diverted stream? Become one yourself!

Using a hand motion sensor in a printed housing with two joined monitors and directional speakers, users manipulate a realistically animated trout avatar on a journey to lay eggs. Challenges along the journey include finding food, avoiding anglers and shallow channels. A diving osprey adds additional spice along the way.

ECOS partnered with Trivium Interactive and BBI engineering to design, implement and evaluate this interactive.
