See extinct sea creatures in auto stereoscopic 3D
If you visit The Deep aquarium in England, you will be able to see and learn about extinct deep sea creatures in 3D.
Auto Stereoscopic 3D offers entertaining knowledge
Wizzcom 3D has been given the assignment to produce three short films in auto stereoscopic 3D. Each film presents a sea creature: the Archelon, the Pliosaurus and the Dunkleosteus. The films aim to visualize the extent animals in their natural environment and aims to impart knowledge in a pleasant and entertaining way.
Watch the films in 2D in our Online Showroom!
You can see the original films in auto stereoscopic 3D at The Deep aquarium in United Kingdom. You are also very welcome to visit any of our showrooms in Stockholm, New York, Las Vegas, Dubai, Saudi Arabien, Australien.
About The Deep
The Deep is a spectacular aquarium located in Hull, East Yorkshire, United Kingdom. This award-winning attraction is home to 3500 fishes including magnificent sharks and rays. The Deep is operated as a charity dedicated to increasing the enjoyment of the world’s oceans.
Archelon is the largest genus of sea turtles ever. A fossil found in the Pierre Shale of South Dakota in the 1970s, measures more than 4 metres (13 ft) long, and about 4.9 metres (16 ft) wide from flipper to flipper. The weight of it is estimated at more than 2200 kg (4,850 lb). Instead of a solid shell, the Archelon had a relatively narrow, high-vaulted skeletal framework supporting a leathery or bony carapace. It also had a pointed tail, a narrow skull, and a pronounced overbite.
Archelon lived during the Cretaceous period (from 145 ± 4 to 66 million years ago). It’s the last period of the Mesozoic Era spanning 79 million years of the Phanerozoic Eon. The Cretaceous was a period with a relatively warm climate, resulting in high eustatic sea levels and creating numerous shallow inland seas. These oceans and seas were populated with now-extinct marine reptiles, ammonites and rudists, while dinosaurs continued to dominate on land.
Pliosaurus was a genus of large carnivorous marine reptiles, that lived during the Late Jurassic Period.
This beast was probably at the top of the food chain wherever it went due to its huge size of 10 to 13 metres and huge, powerful jaws with its rosette of large teeth at the tip of its snout. The Svalbard Pliosaur was one of the largest pliosaurs ever found. Like all pliosaurs, it was a carnivorous marine reptile that fed on fish and other plesiosaurs. Pliosaurus would have swum at quite a slow pace but it would have been a very powerful swimmer similar to whales of today. It may or may not have been countershaded like the great white shark today. This means that it wold have been dark on top to blend in with the oceans dark depths and light on the underside to blend in with the bright sunlit surface. This would have enabled it to sneak up on its unsuspecting prey then take a great bite of it. Pliosaurus would have had a very big bite force because of its relatively short neck, massive head, big snout and great weight. This bite force would have enabled it to go for armoured prey like ammonites.
Dunkleosteus was a large Placoderm (arthrodire fish) that lived in the late Devonian period, about 380–360 million years ago. It grew to 10 metres (33 feet), and was the top predator of its time and one of the top predators of the Paleozoic era.
Dunkelosteus was probably the largest member of the placoderms, and the largest animal up to that time, which would stay that way until the evolution of the dinosaurs. It had one of the most powerful bite of any fish, well ahead of all modern-day sharks, including the Great White shark. It could concentrate a force of up to 8,000 pounds (3,628 kg) per square inch at the tip of its mouth, effectively placing Dunkleosteus in the league of Tyrannosaurus rex and modern crocodiles as having the most powerful known bite.
In recent decades, Dunkleosteus has achieved recognition in popular culture, with a large number of specimens on display, and notable appearances in entertainment media like Sea Monsters – A Walking with Dinosaurs Trilogy and River Monsters. Numerous fossils of some species have been found in North America, Poland, Belgium, and Morocco. The name Dunkleosteus combines the Greek osteus, meaning “bone”, and Dunkle, in honor of David Dunkle of the Cleveland Museum of Natural History.
