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 – BUS SCHEDULES AND TICKETS ARE AVAILABLE AS A AUGMENTED REALITY APP

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.
