Enter a world where nothing is as it seems, there are no rules and fun is engineered. Sail a yacht on land, build a tower on an unstable table, and meddle with the outcome of a do-it-yourself pinball machine.

Effektschmiede GmbH 1 July 2020

Recently we were visited by Noah Levi, together with the production crew of Jive Germany, to film the music video for his new song ‘Sonne oder Regen’. The Effektschmiede Team pulled out all the stops and took charge of lighting, set design, and the production of rain, fog and lightning effects. Noah’s music video dropped on Friday the 19th of July and today we’re sharing our very own making-of video. Noah Levi – Sonne oder Regen

Running exhibits remotely through www or mobile app

Almost 13 years ago the idea to put some of our exhibits online was born in Hiša eksperimentov. The goal was to have Hiša’s doors open even if the physical ones were closed.

Visitors can interact and take control of the exhibits through www or our phone app. Only one person can interact with one exhibit at a time while others wait in line.

The activity was officially launched in 2009 when the EU commissioner Dr Janez Potočnik started the very first online exhibit in Hiša from his office in Brussels.
