VR app for smartphones: Karlsruher Zeitmaschine

The VR app was developed by the Geoinformation Management Bachelor Course at the University of Applied Sciences (Hochschule Karlsruhe).

Three-dimensional, stereoscopic 360° images were generated at twelve locations in downtown Karlsruhe where interesting changes in the cityscape have taken place for five time periods: 1739 – 1834 – 1915 – 1945 and 2015.

On site, the user can use a VR cardboard and his smartphone to view the virtual all-round views in three dimensions on a scale of 1:1. The historical changes can be experienced through direct comparison with reality.
