for visualized klangwolke linz 2010 hubert lepka, director of the artists network

lawine torrèn has developed an incredible concept for the future of the railway:

BABY JET, a supersonic magnet train in a vacuum tunnel, a pioneering project for europe – straight from linz.


klangwolke 2010 is a railway project for the future. on september 4, 2010 at dusk lawine torrèn converted the danube park into computing space. to the soundtrack by peter valentin a real-time thriller came up right in front of the audience. with a supersonic event experiment three physicists of our project team presented the train of the future: BABY JET.


BABY JET is not a piece of art. it's the product of an industrial project run by lawine torrèn, which has been created during several months in association with partners like ÖBB (austrian federal railways), siemens, the ars electronica futurelab and the linz center of mechatronics. from analyzing of the realizability to rapid prototyping: this trailblazing project develops rapidly.
