Created by Prologue, the experience is designed for students aged 13 to 17 and transports users to a high-tech laboratory in outer space where robotic research are hard at work breaking down the mysteries of the universe. Within the fully-realized environment, users are able to explore a complete array of holographic displays and advanced scientific equipment as a means to learn all about chemistry.

“Expanding into the realm of virtual reality, even with decades of Hollywood experience, has been one of our greatest challenges yet,” explains Kyle. “But that also makes it among the most rewarding for us, because we are always striving to become better and push entertaining visual communication further.”
