i-factory - Understanding computer science

Everyday life in Switzerland, just like sophisticated transportation vehicles and systems, could simply no longer operate without information technology. Reason enough for the Swiss Museum of Transport to launch a new, permanent exhibition tackling the topic.

The i-factory provides an appealing, interactive way of trying out the four basic techniques that underlie information technology - an initial encounter with its culture. At the visual centre of the i-factory are practical examples of the information technology that pervades our everyday lives, and the world of transportation in particular, with authentic pictures, film clips and computer animations. They build a bridge between the playful approach of the i-factory and how things happen in the real world.
