XR enables us not only to travel to new spaces – but also times! How amazing would it be if you could revive the ancient story of a city like Munich? What if you could learn about historic events with all their excitement and drama like the Olympic games in 1972?
Our experts will share their work of making time travel an extended reality! Find out what challenges are to be tackled in research, storytelling, and production. We will showcase different approaches from 360 videos to VR productions up to the social VR metaverse.
Our guests of the day are:
Lisa Schulz is co-founder and chief product officer of TimeRide
Leading a team of developers and historical specialists, she brings long forgotten times back to life. Guests will be sent back in time using modern technology – especially Virtual Reality.

His current project is called “Munich 72“. A walk-through documentary in Social VR that traces what happened 50 years ago at the 1972 Olympic Games. The games were supposed to be cheerful. But on the 11th day, Palestinian terrorists take members of the Israeli team hostage.
