Thursday 15th October 2015 - Munich
After Breakfast, we spend the morning at the TechShop, the prototyping centre of UnternehmerTUM, which in turn is incubator and entrepreneurial arm of the Technical University Munich (well, they are actually based in Garching in the North of Munich, close to the airport) where we will actually be able to try out some of the toys, ahem, we mean: tools!
After lunch we head towards the centre of Munich where we will have a chance to visit Innosabi, an aware winning start-up focusing on crowdsourcing where virtual interaction is balanced with real-world interactions, prototyping and testing.
Someone from the BMW Guggenheim Lab will join us either at the TechShop or at Innosabi to share insights from ‘Prototyping the Future’.
Later in the afternoon we will continue by train to Nürnberg where we will have dinner (hotel suggestions again towards the end of this email).
