Heumarkt U-Bahn Station

Since December 2013 every evening an eerie and bizarre scene is taking place at the new underground station Heumarkt that causes confusion of the waiting passengers. Always between 20:00h and 0:00h a special train is displayed on the destination board. But this announced train will never come even though the waiting people can hear how the train rushes through the station without stopping. Like this the impression of a ghost train that rides through the underground network of Cologne is created. This is made possible with 28 loud speakers that are installed along the station platform. They are started randomly once a day during the evening hours. An important requirement for playing them is that there must not be a real train standing at the platform.

Phantasialand: The Crazy Hotel Tartüff - Brühl 2013

With the Crazy Hotel Tartüff the Phantasialand brought a classic of theme park amusement with elaborate technology and affectionate design to a new dimension.

The whole building with its 27 rooms over three levels was themed in Art Nouveau. The tour through the crazy hotel goes through cupboards and turning barrels, over tilting and moving stairs, slides, over rotating stuccoed ceilings and through a glass labyrinth.

Part of the tour is an interactive piano that was installed by inSynergie. It can be played with the feet.  Technically capacitive sensors in the floor detect the movement of feet and trigger correspondent notes on the gamut.
