Virtual Experience at PHOTOPIA XR

 

You will find the XRchitecture at our PHOTOPIA XR area in hall A1. It is not only a real eye-catcher, but also a technical highlight: here you can immerse yourself in the 3D trade fair world by means of VR glasses. In addition, the highlight topics of PHOTOPIA from the real world - namely drone, analog & wedding photography and vlogging - will be linked to the virtual world by means of the cross reality platform XRevent, thus creating unique experiences.

XRchitecture

 

XRchitecture is a project of the Hamburg University of Applied Sciences that has been continuously developed in cooperation with the Academy Fashion & Design Hamburg since March 2020. A core team of students and teachers from the degree programmes Digital Reality, Media Technology, Media Informatics, Medialerraum and Time-Dependent Media/Sound-Vision worked on different sub-areas from a built sculpture to AR applications to VR and XR platforms in the past semesters.

XRevent

XRevent was also created as part of a project at HAW and is the answer to the closure of the night and event culture due to the pandemic.
