Unfortunately for many of us, the Porsche Museum is simply not well located for a day trip. For most, extensive planning is required just to get there. Dipping out for the afternoon to see some magnificent and historically significant Porsches is just not practical. Thanks to a new real-time audio-visual tour offered through GoInStore, popping in to the Porsche Museum in Stuttgart-Zuffenhausen is now very simple. Users can queue in to a virtual tour on the Porsche Museum website, and join a live tour group in the museum. New VR technology is also available to enhance the museum experience for attendees in the museum.
Visit The Museum With a Virtual Tour
The digital tours take users with a live tour group through a special exhibition titled "New Tracks. Every Destination. Always Porsche." This digital ride-along incorporates a live video stream taken by the tour guide, as well as two way audio. The two-way audio feature allows digital tourists to ask questions just like an attendee at the museum.
The technology for this was made available by London based startup GoInStore. GoInStore co-founder, André Hordagoda sees his company's technology as well matched to the Porsche ethos; "Porsche has always been known as an innovator in the automobile sector and their recent implementation of our technology is no exception. Visitors worldwide can now take a live virtual tour of the Porsche museum in real-time without having to be physically present. (This is) a dream for many car enthusiasts who may not have even considered being able to see around this amazing building with its fantastic collection.”
Porsche Museum Virtual Tour Availability
Digital Tours are currently available for free, Tuesday through Sunday. Admission is via the Porsche Museum website during designated hours.
Introducing Microsoft HoloLens for the Porsche Museum.
Porsche seems to be loving augmented reality lately. Earlier this week, Porsche publicly debuted smart glasses for Porsche techs. Attendees at the Porsche Museum can also enjoy the new technology with Microsoft HoloLens. Using this technology, viewers watch a holographic projection of designer Matthias Kulla explain design features on a 911. The glasses also project interactive 3D animations on to a real 911, allowing for an immersive experience.
The HoloLens is currently only available for in-person attendees at the Porsche Museum in Stuttgart.
