Solar VR

About the project

After experiencing the VR for the first time at PAX Prime, the west coasts biggest public gaming convention, I was completely onboard with the idea of virtual reality becoming a everyday reality. I made the purchase of a DK2 and over the course of six months, have been familiarizing myself with Unity, the platform on which I'm now creating my VR demo. I hope to create a immersive learning experience for people to educate themselves about our solar system: the planets, the dwarf planets, the moons, the asteroid belt, and the Kuipler belt. Leveraging the power of VR, people can experience the true vastness of space, the true enormousness of plants, and how it would really look to be in the asteroid belt (hint: it's not at all how it's depicted in Hollywood).
