Yongsan, 4th Industrial Revolution Experience Center ‘X-SPACE’

Under the name of the 4th Industrial Revolution, the industrial structure is undergoing a transformation. With the emergence of new technologies that didn’t exist before, the paradigm of industries is changing.

In line with this, education is also evolving to keep pace with the era of the 4th Industrial Revolution. In Yongsan Electronics Market in Seoul, you can find a space that provides experiences and education tailored to this era.

“‘X-SPACE’: Yongsan Electronics Land, a Comprehensive 4th Industrial Revolution Experience Center”

On the 4th floor of the new building of Yongsan Electronics Land, you can encounter a space called ‘X-SPACE’ dedicated to 4th Industrial Revolution education and experiences. This space, covering an area of 280 square meters, allows family and school group experiences. It is equipped with various devices and equipment related to 3D printers, VR, coding robots, and more.

“Various Play Areas Incorporating AR, VR Technology”

‘X-SPACE’ serves as an educational and experiential space, but it also provides enjoyable experiences tailored to students’ interests. In another sense, it can be described as a play area incorporating 4th Industrial Revolution-related technologies such as AR and VR.

In this designated space, you can experience activities like “VR Flying,” “VR Racing,” and “VR Cave” using VR technology. For instance, with “VR Flying,” you can indirectly experience the extreme sport of “wingsuiting,” which has a high fatality rate in real life, in a VR environment. “VR Racing” allows you to experience driving an F1 racing car around a track.

Activities that may not be easily experienced in reality due to their inherent risks can be virtually experienced through VR.

“AR Robot Battle”

In the central space of ‘X-SPACE,’ you can experience robot battles utilizing AR technology. By applying AR technology to robots in the physical space, you can have an experience similar to playing an “FPS” game. This space is also used for robot coding activities.

“3D Printer, 3D Pen Art”

In addition to AR and VR technology, you can also experience and receive education about printing technology using “3D,” which differs from conventional printers. You can print out results using 3D printing and even create and design new items using a 3D pen.

“Shooting Range”

While there are various experience spaces, the space that students are most interested in is likely the shooting range. This is a space where students can experience shooting using BB guns. It’s a popular space where many students line up to participate, especially when group programs are being held.
