Welcome to the Virtual and Augmented Reality Playground where you will experience the next wave of technology. The Digital Revolution began in the 1950’s with computers the size of rooms. The second wave came with desktops / laptops and the Web. The third wave brought us Smartphones, tablets and social media. Today, we will look at the fourth wave, immersive technologies that will be part of your future.

Virtual Reality Playground

Virtual Reality (VR) creates 360° immersive environments that you step inside of. We will use the mobile VR apps on this page with Google Cardboard.

Download one or more of the following apps and experience the future!


WITHIN

WITHIN is one of the premier VR Studios. Download the app and go to Episode 2 of The Possible, “Listening to the Universe”. Select stream not download for this experience.

YouVisit VR 

Download the YouVisit VR app and see how they train the astronauts at NASA’s Neutral Buoyancy Lab or experience wild animals in the Exotic Kingdom.

InCell VR

InCell VR is an action/racing game with a bit of strategy and science in a virtual world of a carefully recreated human cell.

Anatomy 4D Augmented Reality Experience

The Anatomy 4D experience takes you on a journey inside the human body, revealing the spatial relationships of our organs, skeleton and muscles. Download the App and scan the image of the human body that we have distributed in our sessions today.
