i-DAT have been developing the EMPOD, a Scanning Electron Microscope Simulation interactive pod with the Plymouth Electron Microscopy Centre. The commission from the National Marine Aquarium is part of the brand new 3.6 million Explorocean Centre, which is set to open on 10th March. The web-enabled pod offers interactive explorations of microsopic organisms and incorporates a real (but dormant) Scanning Electron Microscope.
