There are always fun things to do and see at the World Expo. To give you an even better idea, let's hop around to a few pavilions now and sample some of the more interactive attractions that really put the "life" in Better City, Better Life.

Want to do some sports? The online-home-gym in the Shandong Pavilion allows you to run a 100-meter race without going to the track ...

Besides competing in a race, you can also play Ping-Pong and tennis.

Sun Nan, Engineer of Tai Shan on-line Technology, said, "We adopted the 3-dimensional optical tracking technology in this device, every movement of the players will be captured and reflected to the screen, and they are simultaneous."

Players don't only play against a computer, but can also choose to compete with other online players.

Still not exciting enough? Come to Latvia! The pavilion's vertical wind tunnel can fulfill your dream of flying ... All you need is some basic training, and then you can enjoy a free flight at the simulated speed of 180 kilometers per hour.

Now let's move to the west bank of Huangpu River. In Liverpool Pavilion, visitors can try a penalty kick against its virtual goalkeeper. Think you can easily beat him? Think again.

There are also other fun things to do at the many pavilions. Why not take some time and try them yourself?
