Caption: Virtual reality aquarium. Visitors wearing three- dimensional glasses look at a virtual reality view of the main tank of the Lisbon Oceanarium in Portugal, the largest aquarium in Europe. The virtual Oceanarium is part of Expo 98, which is themed around the oceans. As well as the main tank, a graphics supercomputer also simulates sea life in the Oceanarium's other ocean habitats. The different tanks are seen from the point of view of a "diver" who interacts with the 1000 sea creatu- res, all of which are programmed with realistic behaviour. Photographed at the Fraunhofer Instit- ute for Computer Graphics in Darmstadt, Germany, where the virtual Oceanarium was developed.
