Virtual & Augmented Reality
AN EAGLE-EYE VIEW OF VIENNA
Since it began, the VIENNA DESIGN WEEK has worked to enable new perspectives on cities, including its own. One example of such an unexpected view provided in 2018, the Vienna Tourist Board’s immersive experience, fused the physical and virtual realities in a special way: From a great height – the spatial setup with a wind machine and a swing was intended to make this more relatable – the audience was able to explore the city from the back of an eagle in a spectacular 360° view. A world premiere! Never before has an eagle been employed to carry such a camera over a city of millions.
