In this VR experience, you can walk through a virtual metro station in the heart of the city of Berlin and completing different missions while you are at it.
With “Stadtmitte in VR”, we show users how digital data can enhance daily activities: easily finding your way through the concrete jungle, knowing where to buy metro tickets quickly, meeting your friends at the right metro exit.
Innovative technologies like beacon technology can guide you through the city and this project shows in how far VR can be utilized for that.
We included a few gamification aspects and you can pick three different scenarios which will lead to different challenges at Stadtmitte. This project is also hosted on Github.
Behind the scenes: As part of the Long Night of the Sciences (#LNdW16) on June, 11th 2016, we worked on this VR project in cooperation with Technologiestiftung Berlin and BVG. Based on data we received from BVG, we were able to build the metro station for VR.
