The railway project Stuttgart-Ulm e.V. was founded to inform the inhabitants of Stuttgart, Baden-Wurttemberg and other interested parties about the railway project Stuttgart-Ulm in detail.
In order to bring the citizens closer to the new through station of Stuttgart 21, the "Tage der offenen Baustelle" were brought to life, which take place once a year. The construction site can be explored by visitors during the event, which lasts several days in early January. The event is accompanied by various media installations.
In a technology world premiere at the start of 2016, a wireless virtual reality installation was made accessible to the public for the first time. Up to two people were able to experience parts of the future Stuttgart railway station together.
The offer was available to all visitors for three days. The installation enjoyed great popularity and media attention and was used by several hundred visitors of various ages daily.
Using gesture control, visitors could teleport back and forth between different locations in the station and move freely over an area of 5 x 5m. Special highlights were the “Kelchstützen” and the arrival of the trains.
LIGHTSHAPE was responsible for the complete installation. This included the conception, the production of the content, as well as the Holodeck construction of the hardware and the support of the application.
