Many cities that are in the midst of their smart city transformation are realizing that to capture the full benefits of their initiatives, a new and more cohesive approach is needed. Nokia’s challenge was to make the complex concept understandable in a short space of time and communicate the company’s innovative robust, proven technologies like 5G, Industrial IOT and machine learning technology approach to different types of stakeholders.

Stereoscape was tasked with creating a memorable virtual reality experience that demonstrates Nokia’s next-generation technologies in an inspiring, insightful way.


We created an easily portable VR experience that takes the client’s stakeholders on a virtual tour in a future smart city.

Key features:

  • Several people can enter and move within the virtual experience simultaneously
  • Buttons inside the experience engage users to interact
  • Headsets and controllers provide full immersion
  • VR view can be shared to a wider audience via a separate display
  • 360-degree video version for online & offline use
  • 2D video teaser for social media distribution

The virtual smart city was launched at MWC Barcelona 2019 as part of Nokia’s Connected cities exhibition area.
