Meraas is a Dubai-based holding company with operations and assets across the UAE. The Meraas portfolio spans key economic sectors such as real estate, retail, hospitality, technology, food and beverage, leisure and entertainment and healthcare and education.

One of their interests is the Discover the Wonders of the Tropical Forest exhibit at The Green Planet biodome in Dubai. The Green Planet recreates the enchanting world of the tropical forest with over 3,000 plants and animals and the world’s largest indoor man-made and life-sustaining tree. Designed as an enclosed ecosystem, this educational and recreational facility raises awareness about the delicate balance of nature and the preciousness of one of our world’s oldest living ecosystems.

Pico’s role in this permanent exhibit was to create interactive content which showcased information about tropical plants and animals in an engaging and lively way. Our team designed and developed an interactive application which helped bring the various rainforest species to vibrant life for visitors. With a user-friendly interface design and dual language compatibility, the app has been a hit with adults and children alike – teaching them important things about the natural world and showing them how we can protect it for future generations.
