BBC Earth teams up with Sega for interactive zoo

Nature lovers rejoice because BBC Earth (the company responsible for distributing the fantastic Planet Earth series) have struck up a new relationship with Sega for the Japanese market. The partnership itself has been crafted for the interactive zoo: Orbi, which you can see in the trailer above. The project seems to be some sort of virtual nature museum featuring 360 degree theatres, interactive elements, and unique 3D displays. Orbi is also set to open in Yokohama, Japan on August with plans to build new spaces in the US eventually.

The video itself doesn’t show off anything really specific but you get the idea. Sega and BBC, two tastes that go great together! But what do you think? Does this interest you as a fan of either? Or would you rather something more ‘videogamey’ come from this partnership? Let me know in the comments!

  1. Shame guys – you were sent this new tip a week ago and you end up taking it belatedly from Destructiods!! What you missed when Arcade Heroes ran it first!

    If you want News Tips why bother using them!

    Shame on you.

      I’m afraid we didn’t receive any news tip regarding the Orbi exhibit kevinw729. I was first made aware of the Sega-BBC Earth deal about five days ago via Destructoid, with Stevie Grant writing it up on May 31st.

      Whenever we do get news tips sent through, we do our best to get the stories written up ASAP.

      I can’t say I understand your frustration kevinw729. I don’t think there’s any shame to be had by anyone.

      Thanks for the comment.
