1. With the technology of virtual reality (VR equipment) we looked at the life of Syrian girls Sidra that their everyday life is carried out in a refugee camp in Jordan.

2. "Seismic room" while our brain and eyes "agree" with that you are standing on a flat or sloping ground, we felt that it was "losing ground" in the devastating earthquake. 

3. Inequality (not) is an illusion; world we live in is full of inequalities, and one is a special room at the Museum of reality, that the rather Zoran way shows by creating the illusion that the person standing in one corner of the room the giant size, and the person on the opposite corner of the room dwarf.
