Discovery Dock. How the Port of Hamburg becomes an adventure playground.

Discovery Dock. How the Port of Hamburg becomes an adventure playground.

An eternal dream for many: Being a crane operator! Together with DuMont Media, we have developed a multi-sensory VR experience that makes it possible: In Hamburg’s Discovery Dock, visitors virtually take control of a container crane at Germany’s biggest sea port. Broadcaster SAT.1 was there for the grand opening.

Annual Multimedia Award 2020

The interactive exhibition has won the Annual Multimedia Award 2020 in Gold – and we are thrilled that our VR experience played a decisive part in that.

“The whole port in one room. Virtually. An adventure playground with many multimedia stations,” is how the SAT.1 reporter describes the Discovery Dock project in his report on its grand opening. Hamburg’s First Mayor, Peter Tschentscher, is excited as well: “Here, you will have the opportunity to be close to the action and to really understand the processes.”

That’s what it’s all about, and we are proud that our virtual crane operator experience is one of the main attractions. You can see for yourself how well it goes down in the video from minute 1:22. Enjoy!
