It won’t be wrong to assume that most of us might never get to experience space travel. Yes there are ongoing projects that promise to make space travel a reality for the masses but will they really? There is still significant progress to be made and even after that, the costs involved will be astronomical.
However, thanks to virtual reality and NASA, you might be a little closer to the real experience than you think. A result of over two years of work with BrandVR, the project called Space Visor gives users a look into the deep space.
The Space Visor VR headset available at the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex and can be used with one’s own smartphone. It is available in three variants with each one using three different apps to create the experience. The experiences vary widely across the three with one letting users take a ride on the lunar rover and the other allowing them to go on the International Space Station as it goes around the earth.
“At Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex we create immersive space experiences for our visitors,” said Therrin Protze, chief operating officer, Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex. “The Space Visor is the next step to bring our guests an unparalleled experience at the height of current technology.”
The Space Visor is available for purchase at the Kennedy Space Center Space Shop and users can not only use it at the center itself but also take some of the experience back home after the visit. The headset is also available on their website thespaceshop.com.
