Building Investment Lab in a Digital Twin
We are building a digital twin boosted with a game engine filled with transaction data from businesses on the island. Then, we'll start to play with the future.
In this full-scale experiment, a destination's attractiveness and carrying capacity depends on its ability to create a sustainable symbiosis between many different parts: experience, accommodation, food, culture etc. The Project Kållandsö explores destination development in several stages with the help of a digital twin. In this first project, we have loaded the twin with a game generator programmed with consumption data from the local businesses.
We create a "game" where entrepreneurs can experiment with different variables and see how they affect each other: "What if ... I build 100 parking spaces for motorhomes here..." "What if ... 10 more families signed up for room rental and increase the access to prolong the visit on the island ..."
Our thesis is that Kålleverse, which we call the digital mirror of Kållandsö, will help the local industry think like national economists and build a smart and sustainable destination together.
The project's objective is to strengthen competitiveness and drive digital transformation for the local small and medium-sized companies.
