1,000 Cut Journey
1,000 Cut Journey is a virtual reality program that explores racism by allowing users to experience what it’s like to be Black first-hand. This was designed and developed by Dr. Courtney Cogburn, an associate professor at the Columbia University School of Social Work and Dr. Jeremy Bailenson at Stanford University.
In this immersive virtual reality experience, viewers become Michael Sterling, a Black male, and encounter racism as a young child, an adolescent, and a young adult. This experience highlights the social realities of racism, for understanding racism is the essential first step in promoting effective, collective social action and achieving racial justice.

Sales and Training with HoloLens
The Mixed Reality App allows to make the otherwise invisibly installed insulating material Styrodur virtually visible and helps to explain the advantages in a simple and descriptive way.
VR-Training “Visual Flight Rules”
With Virtual Reality, Lufthansa was able to increase the performance of its flight students in VFR training by 15 percent. It is now available for 500 pilot students per year.
Maintenance with HoloLens
The Augmented Reality maintenance app allows service technicians to perform repairs on the track, instead of having to bring trains to a central workshop. The use of the app will in the future potentially reduce downtime and logistical effort.
Spill Prevention Training
“With the VR training we can prepare the participants for dangers and sources of error like never before and thus considerably reduce follow-up costs.”
– Thomas Kiso (Senior Manager Sales & Networks, DEKRA Digital)
When transporting oil and fuel, product leakage and mixing are among the most serious process faults. Expensive consequences are the costly blocking of dispensing systems and pumping out vehicles. Training to avoid such errors has been difficult up to now, as the errors can hardly be simulated in reality.
Warehouse Build-Up Training
“Through the AR training we were able to significantly increase the success. The failure rate was reduced from 36 to 7 percent.”
– Brian Parzer (Training Product Manager, Lufthansa Cargo)
Prospective warehouse workers are currently learning with paper and pictures. Physical training is hardly possible, since the warehouse and the required cargo are usually not accessible to learners and physical training cannot take place in the classroom. On average, about 30% of the trainees do not pass the aptitude test. Employees enter the professional world with little practical experience.
