In a dazzling showcase of technological innovation, the CG3 Institute took center stage at the Science Night hosted by RWTH Aachen University on the evening of November 10, 2023. The event, held at the historic Bergbau location, provided a platform for the institute to exhibit two amazing technical advancements that left attendees in awe.

The first exhibit presented by the CG3 Institute was an Augmented Reality (AR) sandbox, captivating audiences with its interactive and educational features. The AR sandbox allowed participants to manipulate virtual landscapes in real-time, providing a hands-on experience in understanding geological formations and topographical features. This innovative application of AR technology sparked engaging conversations among attendees, highlighting the potential for immersive learning experiences.

The second highlight of the evening was the introduction of the CG3 Institute's Virtual Reality (VR) teaching platform. This cutting-edge platform showcased scenarios encompassing geological mapping and an extensive rock library, offering an approach to geological education. Attendees had the opportunity to step into virtual landscapes, examine geological formations, and explore an extensive library of rocks—all within the immersive environment of VR.
