Check out Czech game for cash prizes

GUESS the weight of the golden artifacts at Czech Pavilion, and if you are one of the 10 people who come closest to the answer, you'll win 50,000 yuan (US$7,310) at the end of the World Expo 2010.

The prizes are being offered by the Czech Republic, which also plans to invite every 500th visitor to the Czech Pavilion to sit on a chair with several sensors and have his or her current emotions detected and recorded.

With the collected data, a unique bottle of perfume carrying his or her feelings will be made by a machine, and the perfume will be sent to the visitor as a gift, said Pavel Antonin Stehlik, the pavilion's commissioner general.

An exhibition on the pavilion opened to visitors at 300 Huaihai Rd M. yesterday.

Through March 22, visitors can see a detailed model of the pavilion and pictures and videos illustrating the idea behind the design.
