Explore the Universe with Deep Space VR
Educational virtual reality (VR) studio Unimersiv, which recently launched a subscription service for its courses, like VR Dinos and Where is the History Teacher? has unveiled Deep Space VR. Developed by Pritula Evgeny, Deep Space VR is a science fiction film about the universe, and supports the Oculus Rift head-mounted display (HMD).
In Deep Space VR you are not just a simple spectator, rather a passenger on a spaceship. In the experience, seen from a first-person point-of-view, you’ll have a chance to visit the furthest corners of our universe. From flying past the International Space Station (ISS), low swooping views of the moon and beyond to Mars and further. The experience renders in excellent detail the surface of planets like Mars, letting users see the vast mountain ranges and deep crater pitted surface.
While Unimersiv does charge $10 USD per month for certain content like VR Dinos and Colosseum VR, generally the large range of VR courses the site has to download are completely free, including Deep Space VR. All users need is a VR HMD like the Oculus Rift, Samsung Gear VR or Google Cardboard to get started, although not all experiences support every HMD currently.
