The CABIN-1 is a 3-meter segment of a hyperloop vehicle with a finished interior. Accenture created both a Microsoft HoloLens 2 experience and an iPad Pro app to virtually transform the CABIN-1 model into a full-size vehicle providing an immersive experience of what traveling by hyperloop will be like.
The iPad experience is a supporting tool for the physical cabin experience, where the participant simply points the iPad camera at CABIN-1, and it allows them to physically walk inside the Hyperloop in true-to-life detail. The HoloLens experience, a self-guided 3-minute adventure, lets the passenger take a seat in the Cabin-1. Once seated, they will become a “Hypernaut” and experience a journey into the not-so-distant future of the European hyperloop transportation network.
In the virtual experience, the passenger will travel on the first planned hyperloop route from Amsterdam, via Eindhoven and Dusseldorf, to Berlin, taking just over an hour. The passenger can compare the Hardt Hyperloop with other means of transport and understand how much faster, more energy-efficient and more comfortable the hyperloop will be compared to trains, cars, and planes.
