Saarland Roadshow at RWTH Aachen

15/05/2018

On April 19, Saarland, one of Germany’s federal states, visited Aachenas part of a roadshow event and presented itself to our students and staff as a great location to work and live.

In the so-called Tiny House, RWTH members had the opportunity to get informed on Saarland as a location to live, as a holiday destination, and, importantly, as an attractive job market. This year, the roadshow had a focus on on Saarland as a hub of information technology and introduced visitors to the new dein-it.saarland (de) website, which informs on IT job opportunities and research activities in Saarland.

The Tiny House was designed as a holiday theme park, fully equipped with sun shades and canvas chairs. Visitors had the opportunity to try out the “motion capture” technology developed by the Saarland company “The Captury”: Six 360 cameras capture the movements of a visitor in real time in order to transform his or her virtual image into a fictional digital figure and transport it into virtual landscapes.
