Space Visor VR Headset: NASA Offers Space Virtual Tour To Visitors
Visitors touring the NASA Kennedy Space Center can now enjoy a virtual tour to the International Space Station as well as the entire solar system through the space visor VR headset available as a souvenir. At a decent price, the gear can already be taken home. The said VR can be enjoyed through installed applications and can work best with flagship smartphones since 2015.
NASA's Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex recently launched a special suite for official virtual reality (VR) experiences where a custom-designed Space Visor VR headset can take visitors out from Earth. The mobile virtual reality headset reportedly uses three mobile applications, taking users to different parts of the universe. Apps available for the Space Visor VR Headset includes the Edge of Home - to see the International Space Station - the KSC 360 Expedition - to see the Rocket Garden, Space Shuttle Atlantis, Lunar Rover, Mercury-Atlas 8, Gemini 9 and Apollo 14 - and the Space Dreams - to learn facts about the planets in the solar system.
With these mobile applications and gear, NASA says it developed a way to take its guests in an outer space experience like no other. "At [the] Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex we create immersive space experiences for our visitors," Therrin Protze, chief operating officer, said in a statement (via collectSPACE). "The Space Visor is the next step to bring our guests an unparalleled experience at the height of current technology," Protze continued.
According to SPACE.com, the Delaware North collaborated with brandVR, an Orlando-based VR technology company, to develop the content of the Space Visor VR headset. Reports claim that the contents were compelling and approachable for all audiences. The operators at the Kennedy Space Center said they wish to share their fancy space experience with people from all walks of life. This they said will also make people appreciate the science of space and galaxies by having a life-like adventure through innovative devices.
The VR reportedly costs $59.99 and is available at the Kennedy Space Center site. The three apps are also downloadable from Google Play and work well on flagship phones since 2015 like iPhone and Samsung Galaxy. The Space Visor VR headset can be used while having a tour at the NASA Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex or elsewhere.
