Seoul Metro, the operator of Subway Lines 1-4, will participate in e-Stars Seoul 2011, Korea’s largest game festival, by operating the interior of a specially-converted train on Subway Line 2 as a mobile 3D game zone for 28 days from July 25.
Seoul Metro will operate a “3D Train” installed with state-of-the-art IT infrastructure in the 3D field, and offer a new venue of experience to allow Seoul citizens fatigued by the hot summer weather to enjoy diverse 3D entertainments.
Seats in the fourth car of the special 3D Train will be installed with devices designed to enable passengers to experience mobile 3D, including the latest model of smart-phone and diverse monitors.
To make the 3D train instantly recognizable to Seoulites, both the interior and the exterior of the train have been installed with a wrapping advertisement. The train will run four times a day on weekdays and five times on Saturdays from 11 am to 5 pm between Seongsu Station and City Hall Station.
Various sweepstake events will also be offered, and SD memory cards and fans will be given away to audience members via onsite events.
