Indonesia offers virtual tour at World Expo Milan.
Visitors at the World Expo Milano (WEM) 2015 in Milan, Italy, can enjoy a virtual tour of Indonesia through an Oculus media show "Virtual Journey of Indonesia" at the Indonesian pavilion, a senior official stated.
Director General for National Export Development of the Ministry of Trade Nus NuzuliaIshak recently noted that the Oculus media show will provide visitors to the WEM at the Indonesian pavilion a feel of Indonesia through the Virtual Journey of Indonesia program.
They can experience Indonesias tourism attractions such as hearing the whisper of sand at Mount Bromo or being present amid the car-free day in Jakarta.
"Visitors at the WEM 2015 can virtually witness and feel Indonesias tourism attractions through the Oculus media show as though they were traveling in Indonesia," Ishak remarked during the Virtual Journey of Indonesia premiere at the Indonesian Pavilion in Milan, on Thursday (May 7).
Oculus is a virtual media platform that replicates a true-to-life experience of having visited a place. The latest technology medium, which was discovered by Palmer Lucky, is equipped with a special four-dimensional spectacle and a supporting screen to produce the desired effects.
The users of the technology can also experience real-life effects such as dew and water, among others.
The Indonesian pavilion, which aims to showcase Indonesias present and future, is therefore using the oculus media to let the visitors experience Indonesia.
Visitors will feel as though they were actually visiting Indonesia through a virtual medium. The use of the medium through the Virtual Journey of Indonesia is expected to attract more visitors to the Indonesian pavilion.
Moreover, the show is located near the "Bogor Cafe Desa Restaurant," so that the visitors can enjoy Indonesian culinary specialties such as "sate ayam" (chicken satay), "nasi goring" (fried rice), and various others Indonesian delicacies.
"So, if visitors want to enjoy unforgettable Indonesian tourism attractions and culinary specialties in a single day, they can just visit the Indonesian pavilion at the WEM, Milan," added Ishak.
