Siemens has been one of the world's most innovative companies for 165 years. Its researchers and developers register some 40 inventions every working day. This has put Siemens at the top of the list in terms of the number of patent applications submitted to the European Patent Office in 2011.
One of the Siemens exhibits at the IdeaPark is the "Magic Mirror," which was created in cooperation with Technische Universität München. The mirror is actually a monitor that overlays images of the observer and a 3D data set from a computer tomography unit in a way that makes it seem as if the observer is looking inside him or herself. Visitors to the IdeaPark can also virtually operate an ICE3 high-speed train with a joystick in a simulated driver's cabin that looks exactly like the setup in the 11,000 hp train.
Several other Siemens exhibits on power generation, distribution, and storage point the way forward for Germany's energy revolution. These exhibits show that the individual components of an energy supply system - i.e. wind turbines, "electricity highways," and smart buildings - need to fit together precisely, like the pieces of a jigsaw puzzle, in order to create a smoothly functioning whole.
Electric cars will also be part of this future energy puzzle - vehicles such as the E-Buggy built by students in the work-study program at the Siemens Technical Academy in Berlin. Visitors to the IdeaPark will be invited to take a ride in the E-Buggy.
