A dedicated expo on the Triangulum activities took place during the World Design Event, which was held together with the Dutch Design Week from 21st until 29th October in Triangulum’s Lighthouse City Eindhoven. And many of the 335,000 visitors to the Design Week explored this exhibition.

The exhibition “Strijp-X” was organised at the Triangulum demonstration area Strijp-S. It showed people the activities that are being realised in Eindhoven and especially in the Strijp-S area with the help of Triangulum.
There were showcases of some of the projects which were made possible by the I-City tender. In 2016, the tender encouraged start-up companies to apply with their innovative ideas on how to make the city smarter. Some of the projects that could be discovered at the exhibition were electric bikes that will run with solar energy or a short circuit especially designed for blind people. Other projects could be discovered on interactive screens. There was a large scale model of Strijp-S where all the projects could be discovered through Virtual Reality. Quite a few projects on Strijp-S can’t be seen in real life because they are underground or ‘hidden’ in lampposts. These projects could be discovered virtually – visitors could, by means of Virtual Reality, walk around the model of Strijp-S and see and experience what was done at the real Strijp-S.
