A Ministry for Primary Industries trial will give visitors arriving into New Zealand a 3D display of biosecurity risk items and explain why they’re not wanted in the country. MPI Manager of Detection Technology, Brett Hickman, said the experiment would determine if new technology can be used to communicate to the public more effectively than current static airport signage. The display shows a narrative focusing on fruit carried inside luggage, then a hitchhiking fruit fly and the damage it could create in an orchard and the fruit sector. The display will sit on top of a bin where visitors can dispose of biosecurity hazards.
