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.
