Metro-NeXt took the public on a virtual journey from New York City’s Grand Central Station to the heart of Zurich, using the latest in augmented reality technology. The project exhibited a replica of a vintage New York City subway entrance that transported visitors to downtown Zurich, Switzerland’s largest city. It uses augmented reality and photogrammetry technologies to display 3D models of Zurich’s old town and the historic “Augustinergasse.”
