Aquariums are full of unbelievable sea creatures that sometimes look like they come from other planets, but the Sketch interactive aquarium is full of even more imaginative sea life than usual, since they come from the creative minds of kids.

At Sketch Aquarium, kids start by picking a fish template and coloring it in on paper. From there, they can scan their drawings, which will instantly appear on the virtual walls of the aquarium as realistic, animated moving sea creatures. When kids want to get up close to their creations, the aquarium walls are programmed to make pieces of food pop on on-screen, causing many fish to cluster nearby.

As described by Sketch Aquarium creators teamLab, the space is a "future park" where kids are given a unique environment to play and learn.
