Eine Reise durch Zeit und Raum zwischen Virtualität und Realität
Virtual Reality Experience
»Set off on a unique journey with the travel agency Taxidi and experience the magic of the seven wonders of the ancient world! With the space station ›Ana Kalypto‹ we fly you right into the middle of an unforgettable adventure with overwhelming sight on the ancient showplaces. For lovers of culture and explorers is this expedition an absolute must. Take the chance on this journey through space and time and discover worlds believed to be lost.«
The project Ana Kalypto is an interactive, multimedia-based installation which uses space in reality and virtuality simultaneously. We use the technique of virtual reality to make no longer existing worlds accessible and experienceable. The visitors set off on a virtual journey to the seven wonders of the ancient world and use the real existing room as intuitive and innovative control. Objects which are displayed in the virtual reality headset can be touched actually and so the visitors immerse in the virtual reality with three of five senses (sight, hearing, touch).
