AN IMMERSIVE VIRTUAL REALITY EXPERIENCE
The Clockwork Forest transports participants into a forest inspired by the Vallée de Joux, the birthplace of Audemars Piguet, where technical complexity is combined with the power of nature. Becoming the heroes of this magical world through the avatars they have chosen, travellers equipped with VR headsets and motion sensors, are given the mission of restoring the course of time before the irreversible disruption of nature occurs. Guided by different characters, including a rabbit, the protagonists evolve in a fairy tale universe and take part in a chariot race pulled by giant ants. Using state-of-the-art technology developed by Dreamscape – which allows for full body tracking – the experience can be enjoyed by six people at the same time.
AVAILABLE TO THE GENERAL PUBLIC
The Clockwork Forest was inaugurated in November 2021 in the futuristic setting of the Manufacture des Saignoles in Le Locle, where it was available for customers and visitors only. Now, this highly anticipated experience will be open to the general public beginning of March 2023, at Dreamscape’s first European venue located at the newly refurbished Confederation Centre mall in Geneva. Participants will be able to enjoy it (upon reservation) for a limited period of two months only.
“Since its creation, Audemars Piguet has combined ancestral know-how and cutting-edge technology to push the boundaries of watchmaking art and customer experience, creating links with the world of science, technology or pop culture. Today, Audemars Piguet is proud to push its commitment to the world of technology and entertainment even further.”
