The new and modern add-on to the Schlossmuseum Linz, Upper Austria, is home to a permanent installation of our Struktable. The 70″ multitouch-capable back-projection screen features interactive multi-user games educating the visitors about solar-power, railways, raodways, water and tourism in Upper Austria.
The first game Strukt produced is called “Solar Land”. The visitors can place solar panels on a map of Upper Austria, guessing where they would be most efficient according to the altitude of the sun in the area. After all items are placed, the participants can start a simulation of the insolation over the duration of an entire year. The game shows how much energy is produced during that period of time, and the top simulations are listed in a high-score. The results encourage people to discuss their decissions and to play the game once more, using the knowledge they gained to reach a better score.
