During the summer of 1985, from disciplines as varied as filmmaking, engineering, gardening, town planning, ... computer program, magic and events staging, there came together a team of young think-tanks.
That was a brain-pool.
While interacting at places ranging from coffeehouses to greenhouses, the participants imagineered a concept, then futuristic, to amalgamate information and technology. The purpose was to provide wholesome leisure and entertainment to a population eager to become active participants rather than remain passive audience in programs offered for their consumption.
That concept saw its first realization in Kishkinta - India's First Theme Park.
Well, other than Entertainment Parks, there are yet other venues ... Interactive Museums with animated installations, Heritage Parks with built-in VR & 3D projections ... many many such.
Outlined here is another one such - Kuttanad Heritage Park.
It showcases the linking of Education, Entertainment and AI.
