The Luxembourg-based startup Vizz partnered with the Ministry of Tourism to develop an innovative combination of swing and virtual reality allowing an unforgettable experience to discover Luxembourg as an attractive and diverse destination for young and old.
Reaching for the sky while exploring the most beautiful tourist destinations within Luxembourg from a completely new perspective is now possible for visitors of the newly introduced "SkySwing".
Developed by the local expert in extended reality and interactive brand communication "Vizz" for the Ministry of Tourism and Luxembourg for Tourism GIE, the innovative combination of swing and virtual reality allows an unforgettable experience to discover Luxembourg as an attractive and diverse destination for young and old.
We are more than happy and proud to be selected by the Ministry of Tourism to leverage our experience and cutting-edge technology in order to promote the beauty and variety of Luxembourg around the world in the most innovative way, says Mathias Keune, Founder and CEO of Vizz.
An intuitive user interface
After putting on the VR headset, the visitor has the opportunity to discover 20 locations within the Grand Duchy from a bird's eye view. Each of the six tourist regions is represented with unique highlights based on 360° drone images and 3D objects.
Custom-made motion tracking is transporting every movement of the swing from the real to the virtual world in order to provide the highest level of immersion - 100% wow guaranteed.
By implementing the most intuitive user interface, the visitor is able to navigate to the preferred location, choose an audio guide in German, English or French and last but not least create his personal and fully unique postcard via the virtual camera, which can be printed out directly.
Enjoyable and extremely safe
Engineered with the goal in mind to be present at international events around the world and to offer visitors the opportunity of a (virtual) trip to Luxembourg, the complete installation can be easily shipped and reassembled in no time.
A maximum of hygiene has become crucial in our daily lives and especially at events with a high number of visitors. Therefore, the installation offers not only an enjoyable experience but also an extremely safe one by utilizing UVC cleaning devices, regularly replaceable silicone covers and disposable face masks to avoid direct contact with the VR headset.
