Advanced gesture recognition and motion design, multi-touch detection and projection mapping – it all sounds so high-tech and scientific. And it is – but it’s also fun. This is the new Mosh! digital edutainment centre on Sentosa, which showcases cool state-of-the-art multimedia technology from Japan.
Here’s a brief breakdown of the five interactive installations you’ll find there.
The very cool Doodle Aquarium lets you bring your very own drawings to life. All you have to do is pick up one of the special doodle cards, draw your fish in the white space and give it a name – this is the time to let your imagination shine. Then, place it on the special scanner and watch it come to life and swim off to join the all the other sea creatures in the giant digital aquarium on the wall.
Did you just see that paper airplane turn into a "real" one on the screen? This is the Paper Plane Adventure at Mosh! The digital playground is having its soft opening this Saturday from 10am. Find it atop the upcoming Kidzania building by the Beach Station bus station on Sentosa.

Then don the cute aviator hats and goggles for the Paper Plane Adventure. Fold your own paper plane, then launch it at the multi-touch detection screen. Based on how far your plane travels and how hard it hits the screen, it could turn into a small propeller plane or even a large jumbo jet. Check it out in the video above. Based on the elements, the space rotates between four landscapes – the dessert with the airplanes, a jungle with towering dinosaurs, a sparkling ruby cavern meant to represent fire, and an icy tundra. And take a look below your feet, too – the sensors overhead even sense where you step and you could find the ice cracking beneath your feet!
Those who dream of being an astronaut can also float up into space at the Fireworks Party. Here, visitors look down on Earth, sprinkling stardust down with every step they take, and shooting fireworks up with every wave, jump and move you make. A fun game to play with the kids here is to watch the rotating Earth below – how many famous monuments and landmarks can you name?
