Time travel now possible – with our VR-timetravel-technology

TIME TRAVEL NOW POSSIBLE – WITH OUR VR-TIMETRAVEL-TECHNOLOGY

ZREALITY, part of the DDG – Digital Devotion Group, developed a unique Virtual Tourism Solution, allowing a visitor to experience in VR the city of Luxembourg during the year 1867, while driving with a tour bus through the city. The period of 1867 is particularly important for Luxembourg, since it was the time when the international stabilization of Luxembourg as an independent state was enforced. The visitor takes a “virtual” ride as a passenger on a horse-drawn carriage with a coachman, seeing the buildings and surroundings from the past during the drive exactly where the tour bus is located. Therefore, the reality and the virtual world melt into a perfect time travel experience. Furthermore, numerous other application scenarios are conceivable, such as the enrichment of the solution with educational contents for schools and travelling “into the future,” to revolutionize urban planning.

Smart city becomes reality in Luxembourg

SMART CITY BECOMES REALITY IN LUXEMBOURG – BUS SCHEDULES AND TICKETS ARE AVAILABLE AS A AUGMENTED REALITY APP

The Luxembourg transport services offer citizens an innovative solution for accessing bus information as part of the Luxembourg City digitalization. The “VdL-AR” app was developed by ZREALITY and allows fast access to current bus schedules, without complicated navigation or search in an app. A user simply points the smartphone to the bus stop. The app automatically recognizes the location and provides the most up-to-date time table information. Tickets can also be booked. The app makes it easier to find the information compared to traditional apps, since the use of Augmented Reality always displays the information perfectly in the user’s view.

The app was conceptualized and developed by ZREALITY , a company of the DDG – Digital Devotion Group. Accomplished by integrating the latest AR image recognition technologies into the AR App and create an outstanding AR user experience. The app is available vor smartphones and tablets using Android and iOS.

AR tourism – sightseeing redefined

SIGHTSEEING REDEFINED – WITH THE AUGMENTED REALITY APP FOR THE CITY OF LUXEMBOURG

The City of Luxembourg is digitally gearing up and launches a new app today. The AR app “VdL-AR” was developed by ZREALITY and offers a completely new AR-Sightseeing experience, allowing a visitor with smartphone to revive historical sites and buildings. For this purpose visitors point the smartphone to a building when reaching a hotspot in the course of a city tour. The app automatically recognizes the building and then accurately overlays an image of the building from the past exactly at the right position. The app also allows you to navigate through several eras of time and provides more useful information. Therefore, reality and virtual information merge into a unique experience.

The app was conceptualized and developed by ZREALITY, a company of the DDG – Digital Devotion Group. Accomplished by integrating the latest AR image recognition technologies into the AR App and create a perfect illusion. The app is available vor smartphones and tablets using Android and iOS.

Experience cultural heritage in virtual reality

ZREALITY GmbH, in cooperation with the University of Kaiserslautern and several Chinese companies, has created a digital reconstruction of the Chinese temple from the Song dynasty.

With the help of the VR glasses, it is thus possible to move freely in the three-dimensional virtual reconstruction, explore the temple and interact with other users. In addition, holograms explaining the history of the items can appear in front of the users. The magnificent frescoes that cover the interior walls of the temple in particular were depicted in a true-to-life manner and fascinate the visitors.
The special digital reconstruction was also presented to the visitors as part of the official German-Chinese cultural programme 2017 during the long Night of Culture in Kaiserslautern.
