A mixed reality game for the 125th Anniversary 

Finally making history as exciting as we would have liked to have had it in school? You didn’t have to ask us twice: to celebrate the 125th anniversary of ewz, we created the smartphone app ‹ewz-on› and told the history of Zurich’s electricity through 6 mini games. Participants took on an active role in bringing power to their hometown through time – and even into the future: Or wouldn’t you agree that bragging about a remotely controlled household seems quite passé, after you’ve turned off the lights of main public buildings in Zurich at the simple touch of your phone? 

Putting out the lights in Zurich: Controlled by smartphone,
46 public buildings vanished into darkness.
