19|07|2023 – Our interactive augmented reality application “Journey to the Arctic” is coming to the INSPIRATA in Leipzig and will be part of the programme. The non-profit association has set itself the goal of promoting mathematical and scientific education. To this end, many exciting hands-on experiments and offers are available on-site. “Journey to the Arctic” can now be played on-site as well.
This is a premiere for us because up to now the application has only been running at our place. We are very excited and are looking forward to seeing how the response to “Journey to the Arctic” turns out.
Vincent Schiller as CTO / modular Heartucate framework
31|05|2023 – Vincent Schiller is Heartucate’s new Technical Director / CTO. Thereby Heartucate is not complemented with a great shareholder, but also with a specifically developed internal modular framework for interactive multiplayer applications with augmented reality. This means that we are now much more flexible in implementation and can implement different technical requirements more efficiently and quickly.

Project development funding MDM for “Mary Shelley – The Lost Memories”
18|04|2023 – We are happy about the approval of the Mitteldeutsche Medienförderung for the project development of “Mary Shelley – The Lost Memories”, an interactive augmented reality experience in multiplayer mode about Frankenstein’s author Mary Shelley.
In the experience, you meet Mary Shelley in her old office, but not as herself, but as an artificial intelligence. By fixing the #AI, you will learn about Mary Shelley and her life as a writer, her thoughts and progressive results. The experience is based between biographical work and dealing with artificial intelligence. We are happy about this great news and thereby can also bring our interns Sarah and Ernesta back. We say: Thank you, MDM!
