We participated again at the pioneers event. Pioneers´17 was about technical progress and how this will influence our lives in future. Especially technologies which enhance human capacity and face the worldwide challenges were exhibited. Among the participants were 500 selected startups and renowned global innovators. As one of 50 selected startups we had the chance to pitch in the batch industry 4.0.
The event dealt with questions about how innovation and technology will affect our future, speaking about our daily life and the way our future society works. An important point is to let technology enhance our life but also keeping our values. The event was visited by more than 2500 founders, investors and executives, who arrived from more than 100 countries.
This week, we visited the event re:publica. Thomas, our Co-founder, had a presentation about the use cases of VISCOPIC´s training application. Re:publica is a conference about digital culture and addresses a wide public. The various fields of experience and backgrounds of the attendees created an interesting conference and a broad range of issues.
Thomas´ talk was about learning with Augmented and Virtual Reality. He also showed the application which VISCOPIC developed for the Deutsche Bahn. The public was fascinated by the use of these new technologies as well as by the advantages which provide the immersive and collaborative learning methods, that VISCOPIC´s training application provides.

Marco and Thomas were at START Summit in St. Gallen. The entrepreneurship conference aims to reach students, founders and investors and puts the focus on new innovative technologies. The panels and debates in particular talked about augmented and virtual reality, artificial intelligence and more use-cases of these innovative trends. We had two days full of interesting one-one meetings, workshops, keynotes and new contacts.
Thanks for the great organisation to GLOBAL Start.
We spent this week at CeBIT, the biggest IT fair worldwide. As one of 450 startups we had our booth in hall 11 and impressed the visitors with our training application for the HoloLens.
At our booth, we informed the interested visitors and experts about our products and let them try out a demo version of the application VISCOPIC developed for Deutsche Bahn. The visitors were amazed, enthusiastic and fascinated what is possible with the new technology.
We had a lot of interesting talks and also could take some time to have a look around. We feel honored we had Brigitte Zypries, the German minister for Economics and Energy, at our booth trying out our mixed reality training application.
We felt very proud when we realized we were invited to MUST – The Munich Summit, an event for startups and corporates. Being one of 120 startups that were present, we had the honour to be part of an amazing that included panels, pitches and workshops.
MUST, initiated by the Entrepreneurship Centres of Munich´s universities, has its special exclusivity and intimate setting. It counts about 400 participants who get great chances to interact with each other.
On February 10 we presented our mixed reality training application and our project results in front of a wide public as part of the Demo Day from DB mindbox. After being selected in October of last year for the DB Accelerator, we had 3 month to develop a prototype. Right now, we are negotiating with Deutsche Bahn to extend the actual mixed reality application.

Felix and Thomas attended the DigiDays @MAN in Augsburg. On the internal event from MAN Diesel & Turbo actual internal digitalisation projects and external innovations and products for digitalisation from MAN were shown. We presented the HoloLens including our applications and got a lot of valuable feedback as well as contacts.
Felix from Viscopic participated at Mobility.Pioneers, the fair developed for technology start-ups in Munich. Pioneers provided the contact to investors, to companies executives and to other startups. Through workshops and speeches, we got updated regarding the actual trends and also had the opportunity to get in contact with several representatives of the industry.
Today we were in Berlin showing our training application to Dr. Rüdiger Grube, the CEO of Deutsche Bahn. He seemed pretty fascinated and impressed by the training application. We were also discussing next steps and how to continue developing the product.
