Editor’s Review
Transport yourself to the Orient with this lush simulation of a Koi pond.  Gorgeous graphics give a lifelike impression of a small pond filled with Koi fish; the realistic footbridge makes us want to walk over it.   We love how the depth of the water gives the impression of a sunken pool in the floor – ultra-realistic. This app is from the same group – Magnopus -that developed HoloQuarium.

The controls are excellent – large enough to easily grab and manipulate.

The only drawback is the lack of things “to-do” with this app – besides tapping on the water to startle the fish it gets a boring in a hurry.  How about being able to feed the fish to watch them grow day by day.  Or, adding some soothing music would make this a terrific relaxation app.

This app works great when showing holographic technology to friends – easy setup, easy controls, beautiful virtual reality.
