See your future in 3D

THE Image Thematic Week at the Rhone-Alpes Pavilion and San Francisco Week were opened yesterday, both in the Urban Best Practices Area.

At the Rhone-Alpes Pavilion, people can see a vision of urban life in the future in a 3D movie. And there will be a series of lectures about the film industry in the region in collaboration with the Shanghai International Film Festival.

The pavilion is also planning to broadcast a live opera from Paris in 3D.

San Francisco, a sister city with Shanghai, is displaying its green technologies at the Pavilion of Future.

Visitors will be able to learn about the use of solar and wind energies in the city.

San Francisco's mayor, Gavin Newsom, said they were proud to be part of the World Expo, and the cooperation between the two cities will focus on green technologies over the next few years.

One of the most eye-catching parts of the exhibition are wax figures of local favorite Yao Ming, the NBA star, and United States President Barack Obama.

It would be a rare chance for people to take photos with both celebrities.
