Kaap Skil, Texel

In close collaboration with Synergique and the Kaap Skil Museum, we added an extensive layer of information (and a bit of magic) to their huge maritime scale model - the largest of its kind in the world.

The scale model with its 160 boats has been brought to life with an interactive top-down projection. Visitors can use stations around the model to highlight individual features and learn more about the rich stories behind the different ships that lay anchor in 17th century Texel.

Right next to the model is a collaborative three-player multiplayergame, where visitors experience first-hand the difficulties of sailing the treacherous Zuiderzee.

For a look behind the scenes, read our very own developer Thomas Kole's blog about the sailing game here.
