Humboldt Hackatón de realidad mixta

In mixed reality jams in Bogotá, Lima and Mexico City about 100 artists, VR developers and Humboldt enthusiasts came together to translate Humboldt‘s South American journey into virtual and augmented reality experiences. A jury consisting of local and international experts selected a team from each city to present its application in the Humboldt Forum.

Colombia - JUYEKO Humboldt

This team from Bogotá has developed a mixed reality application that incorporates sounds and movements, augmented reality elements and immersive sounds from the environment it is located in. The indigenous community house becomes a meeting place. Humboldt‘s South American journey is mirrored from the perspective of indigenous thought, encouraging us to engage with indigenous perspectives on knowledge and the environment through physical experience. Juyeko Humboldt aims to decolonise consciousness through the medium of ritual dance.
 
 

Mexico - Alexander VR Humboldt

Humboldt‘s ambition to map the world is still fascinating today. In its virtual reality application, the team from Mexico City focuses on the explorer’s instruments. Using measuring devices such as sextants or altimeters from Humboldt‘s luggage, the researcher‘s everyday life can be experienced in five different missions. Humboldt‘s Mexican travel route is traced from his arrival in Acapulco to Mexico City.
 
 

peru - Hololistic

In this virtual reality application from Lima, visitors immerse themselves in a world inspired by video game aesthetics. They have to walk through a narrow mine tunnel, follow the instructions of a rabbit and climb steep mountain slopes. The commenting voice of Alexander von Humboldt, which embeds the events in a historical context, provides orientation.
