Virtual Bike is a revolutionary installation which leads you to an interactive virtual world, making use of a real bike. Everywhere you are – in your living room, in your office, at the museum,Virtual Bike is a new match point of adventures, information and culture - just for you. Imagine yourself in your own living room: you will be able to explore a Medieval village, visit London Bridge or zip through the overcongested Oxford Circus. You will get the beauty that you want: ride quickly along the Imperial Forum and twist around the Colosseum during your best friend’s birthday party.
The bike is placed on a specific stand; it has modern sensors which give you the chance to interact with a virtual dimension: you will be able to control your speed and direction. In addition, Virtual Bike offers you an audio visual support: all the rest depends on you.
Virtual Bike gives you access to a new dimension with no limits where you will be able to find out stories and curiosities about places you would like to explore, like historical cities or further ones.
Virtual Bike offers you an unforgettable playful experience. It is a great hang out for you and your friends: challange them along exciting routes and learn how to cross game and action limits. Add new virtual barries, a time limit to pass and a score to reach. Open your mind and let VB fascinate you!
Virtual Bike’s environment is safe and protected: it reduces some dangerous risks in riding on the road and offers the opportunity to use a bike to people who are not able to move autonomously.
