National Geographic Lets Fans Find Real Treasures In Tiny World

National Geographic Lets Fans Find Real Treasures In Tiny World

Deeplocal has partnered with the organization to build an innovative "real-world application" for fans to explore.

Deeplocal, the shop behind Nike’s Chalkbot, has partnered with National Geographic to build an immersive miniature world.

Starting on March 28th, there’s a whole big world out there to explore – a whole big TINY world! The National Geographic Channel is going to send you on an expedition into a miniature realm fashioned after the environments seen in our Expedition Week documentaries.

Drive a Robotic Camera Train through a tiny world dotted with amazing sites and find miniature artifacts. Line up the camera and take a picture of one of those miniature artifacts and WE’LL MAIL YOU THE LIFE-SIZE VERSION! That’s right… we’ll actually send it to you!

While exploring miniature versions of Victorian London, the Himalayas, and a Gladiator Coliseum, users will be able to discover items that are somehow tied to the themes of National Geographic’s Expedition Week.  These include everything from a replica fossil of an ichthyosaur snout to a real 3000-year-old Egyptian scarab-beetle.
