SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- There's something of a new reality at the Aquarium of the Bay in San Francisco. The new augmented reality and virtual exhibits opened to the public on Monday.
The first consists of two AR-enhanced shows that let visitors interact with images of polar bears, whales, seals and penguins.
The images are projected onto a 20-foot screen.
The VR exhibit lets visitors "swim with whales" using headsets custom-made for the aquarium, combined with deep diving footage.
It's the first VR microtheater on the West Coast.
