Client
  • Taiwan Power Company

Visitors are quickly turned into an “energy maker” once they enter ENERGYM. Their physical movements are tracked through a wristband and translated into a virtual energy storage system.

ENERGYM demonstrates the basic concepts and general knowledge of renewable energy as well as its operating principles, current status, future outlook and different types, including hydro, wind, solar, marine and geothermal energy, into multiple experiences in audio-visual and interactive forms for visitors of all ages.

The Challenge

The major challenge of this project is the dissemination of knowledge about power generation and renewable energy, which is transformed into multiple experiences in audio-visual and interactive forms for visitors of all ages.
