1. What connects you as a team?
We are cityscaper, a StartUp from Aachen transforming the city planning process with Augmented Reality. We visualize any construction plans fully real on site in 3D. Meanwhile, the plans can be adapted intuitively on site, offering real time documentation of thoughts and ideas. This leverages the potential to better integrate citizens feedback into the process. We have a first MockUp website: https://cityscaper.de

4. What are your highlights in Düsseldorf or what is your connection to Düsseldorf?
After listening to a concert by Nils Frahm, the best concert we have ever listened to, the team was looking forward to incorporate Tonhalle into their final solution for the Hackathon. Luckily, the Tonhalle became the main site for the competition. Sometimes the topic, the exact exercise and technology create a perfect match for an exciting Hack! or What is your connection to Düsseldorf?
