Interactive theatre developer Animalive has signed an agreement with Merlin Entertainments to provide its latest technology solution, ChatterBox Mini, for the Sealife Centre brand in the UK.

According to the group, Animalive’s technology will be placed in four Sealife centres across the UK, adding new level of theatre-based entertainment and education for its guests.

Animalive’s ChatterBox Mini previously won an IAAPA best product award. The technology combines motion capture, real time animation rendering software and video hardware – a solution previously only available to television production companies for children programmes.

"For their purpose we created special character, Kiah the Turtle, who will host an interactive quiz, which asks guests questions about their experience and what have they learned during their visit," said Ali Kord, CEO of Animalive.
