Ocean Wonders Exhibit
About the Exhibit
More than 75% of the earth is covered by ocean
And only 3% of the planet's oceans have been discovered
Ocean plants contribute about 60-75% of the oxygen in the Earths atmosphere
We cannot afford to ignore the existence of a symbiotic relationship between humans and the ocean today.
The Solution Is Awareness
This exhibit aims to create awareness about the coexistence of the symbiotic relationship between humans and the ocean which helps understand a basic fact…“We need the ocean as much as it needs us”
“Art can create large shifts in awareness and value …only when it is accessible to the world”

App Apes Review
Exploring the depths of the tropical reefs in the Indian ocean has never been as safe or easy as with Earth Matterz LLP’s iPad app Ocean Wonders. A self enclosed educational app, Ocean Wonders proves itself to be a refreshing educational app for iOS tablet devices. While there is certainly plenty of information online, websites are riddled with ads (many not family friendly) and sometimes viruses. There are also plenty of places on the web that are unsafe for children to venture into in general. With Ocean Wonders, parents can rest easy knowing their children are free to explore the ocean of information in the app without stumbling across something vulgar, violent, or otherwise damaging.
The catch is that the app offers in-app purchases. Essentially, the app breaks down segments of information and topics into separate purchasable pieces ($1.99 each). Currently, the “Open Ocean” mammals segment is purchasable, with other sections such as “Within the Reef” to come. Despite the price, the app is cheaper than a single book on the topic, even when all future segments are unlocked. Ocean Wonders also has the exciting interactive component that’ll help keep kids interested. The 3D sphere navigation is both original and engaging. This spherical UI and navigation provides a fun way to explore an encyclopaedia on the tropical reefs in the Indian ocean and makes the app one that users will want to return to again and again.
An interesting and useful feature is the “rest your mind” section, which provides a nice break from learning with soft music and relaxing videos. A “Sharpen your Mind” segment is planned for the future, as well. While there is quite a bit of information to digest within the app, it is currently missing quite a few parts and thus the inexhaustibly suffers a bit. All in all, tough, the app functions as intended, providing important and interesting information. On top of this, the company’s mission to create awareness of how much humans need the oceans is a noble one. Ocean Wonders does a wonderful job in simplifying learning on the topic of Indian Ocean reef life while making it more interactive than a traditional book. The app is well worth a download, and if you find the free section entertaining and useful, worth a reasonably priced in-app purchase or two.

This app features a new format of a digital book which is interactive and is about learning from something called the index sphere, where the entire content is accessible via one page. The goal is to provide easy yet immersive data on the benefits of clean and healthy oceans and how this is beneficial to the human species. It is a digital book without turning/swiping pages. It simplifies the user's journey to the basics of 1-3 clicks to reach from point A to B, from anywhere in the app. Access to 500+ pages of content is available, all in one page. Knowledge is imparted through artistic representations conceptualised into interactive 3D models, videos, illustrations, images, Maps and Quizzes.

Ocean wonders is a platform for creating awareness of clean and healthy oceans, which provides good information about the current state of the marine life on Earth. It is a digital book within a 3D sphere, which allows access to all the content via one page. Ocean Wonders lays emphasis on the basic fact that, we as a human species share a symbiotic relationship with our oceans on Earth, because ocean plants contribute more than 75% of our oxygen in the Earths atmosphere. This message has been imparted by giving quick and easy to read information on the inhabitants of the oceans like, coral reefs, marine mammals and other such living beings.
It looks like this app is for every age group because maintaining clean and healthy ecosystems, is a job that we as a Human species must consider today. Since we have a keen interest in conservation ourselves and geographical studies, we downloaded this app and to our surprise it was extremely informative and way beyond our expectations. It allows the user to learn at their own pace and time and the information is impaired in a quick, easy and fun format, like 3D models, maps, quizzes, short white board videos and illustrations to name a few.
Ideas are represented in 3D models, quizzes , maps, images and illustrations
It is a digital book without having to turn/swipe pages
500+ pages of content all accessible through one single page
Easy navigation as the user can get from point A to B within 3 clicks
Maps: Modified google maps are very interesting.
Quizzes are fun and easy
Overall easy to understand and minimal text
Simple to use as the UI is very good
No collection of users personal data
No 3rd party advertisement
Buy the app in parts vs buying the whole app at once
Horizontal visualisation only
One of the most interesting features which we appreciated is within the G section of the app. Ocean Wonders has integrated something called, a non intrusive parental/personal health control. The purpose of this is to allow the user to understand the importance of resting their eyes and mind at every 20 minutes (away from the screen).
This has been achieved by adding meditation music with short demos on how to empty the mind, to further be able to grasp more knowledge during the reading/learning process. Within the app, this is available in the G section (Rest Area).
Moreover, Ocean Wonders is an educational app and address one of the most important battles that we as a human species is fighting today “ Maintaining clean and healthy oceans”. Hence it is our suggestion to read it and spread the word o your family and friends, in order to support this noble cause.
