Virtual Energy Hero
Virtual Reality Game
At a glance
The Virtual Energy Hero is a VR game with the aim of bringing
the topics of the energy strategy closer to the population in a
playful and interactive way. Together with Oscar, the owl, you fly
over Winterthur, solve tricky questions on various energy topics
(i.e. renewable energies, mobility or energy efficiency), and apply
what you have learned in a virtual single-family house.
Joining virtual reality technology with gamification techniques to create new learning and development experiences in a more interactive and enjoyable way: encouraging people to engage with energy issues and take action.
The prototype, as it is now, is a unique eye-catcher and can be used at fairs and ZHAW events. Further development is already being planned.
