Innovation meets architecture meets wood

"Nachtaktiv" is a science education program, that aims to promote creativity, critical thinking, problem-solving, self-confidence, and youth leadership. We were invited to be part of the event that took place at ZAZ Bellerive, where the acoustic wall is exhibited until October 30th. Talking about our work and sharing our passion for innovation and cutting-edge technology with a young crowd was a pleasure.

School class visits incon.ai and robots

On September 5th, a local school class visited us at the ETH Zurich Robotic Fabrication Laboratory and got the chance to try our app with first-hand instructions from incon.ai CTO Fadri Furrer. The young adults had great questions for us. Which lead to an interesting conversation about technology, the future, and what it’s like to grow up in a fast-paced and rapidly developing world.

International Wood Fair Klagenfurt, Austria

We were part of the International Wood Fair in Klagenfurt, Austria. For four days, our team showed the incon.ai app to everyone that walked by our innovation area booth. People were intrigued, and some were a little skeptical at first, but after trying the app themselves and walking around the timber element with information from the 3D models overlayed in augmented reality, we got a "wow" out of almost everyone.

The new acoustic wall is part of the inspiring exhibition TOUCH WOOD curated by Thomas Hildebrand, Carla Ferrer, and Celina Martinez-Cañavate S. It focuses on the potential of wood in architecture and engineering. The project was a collaboration between incon.ai, ERNE, Basler & Hofmann, and Gramazio Kohler Research and stands in the Zentrum für Architektur Zürich ZAZ BELLERIVE.
