WE all remember Matilda the giant Kangaroo. But what about the Fuwa dolls from Beijing? Let’s be frank, some Games mascots have been pretty forgettable.

Shane Warne - 'Cricket Found Me'

The real Shane Warne and his "ghost" in the Cricket Found Me exhibit in the National Sports Museum.A theatrical experience at the National Sports Museum brings cricketing great Shane Warne to life in 3D. 

This major attraction sees one of Australia’s best-loved sportsmen face-to-face with his audience, discussing the highs and lows, setbacks and triumphs of a famous sporting life. 

Using the latest in simulated hologram technology, audiences will feel they are actually in the room with 'Warnie' as he discusses his career.

In 'Cricket Found Me', Warne takes the audience into the MCG changing rooms and shares some of the great moments of his career, including the infamous ‘Gatting’ ball. 

And in this environment, Warne interacts with the set as he moves around the space – locker doors open, cricket bats are picked up and moved and he looks and feels like he is actually there.

Technology used in this new permanent attraction draws on a 19th century technique known as Pepper's ghost, where an illusion is created by vision and light being refracted from a hidden source onto a pane of angled glass, leaving the visitor seeing a semi-transparent version of the subject. 

The age-old technique has in this instance been totally modernised using the very latest high-definition film and sound technology.

As a result, visitors to the National Sports Museum can come able to come face-to-face with one of Australian sports' most important players – and gain an insight into the moments that shaped his career.
