Weitblick / new telescope for viewpoints


Weitblick is a re-interpretation of a telescope, developed for public viewpoints. You look out into the distance through a transparent screen, that has a built-in camera and allows you to operate like a touchscreen on mobile devices. For example you can zoom, get information, start a time travel or just override the foggy weather with pictures taken under better weather conditions.
The screen is pivoted in its solid base. By tilting the stand, you can adjust the height.
A special mechanism in the stand keeps the screen in an upright position at any time.
