At Vive, they pride themselves on providing access to the freshest and most exciting VR content around. Whether it’s high-octane shooters or serene meditative landscapes, multi-dimensional creative space or thought provoking 360 video, there is something for everyone on Vive.
This week, it’s time to slip the surly bonds of earth, and venture into the enormous expanse otherwise known as space. We have three exceptional experiences for you, each designed to intrigue, excite and thrill. You’ll get a chance to chill with superstar astronaut Buzz Aldrin (not Lightyear), fight for your life, and relive one of the greatest space expeditions in history.
So, strap in and check these out:
Buzz Aldrin: Cycling Pathways to Mars – Buzz Aldrin wants to be remembered for more than just “kicking up moon dust.” He wants his legacy to include laying the groundwork for a permanent human settlement on Mars, and he has a plan. As NASA prepares to send the first humans to Mars, 8i and Time Inc’s LIFE VR have collaborated with the celebrated astronaut and historical icon to create a one of a kind virtual reality experience. In the world’s first holographic legacy VR project, viewers have the opportunity to ‘meet’ the astronaut through his hologram, journeying with Dr. Aldrin from his landing site on the moon to Mars as he shows you first hand his plan for inhabiting the Red Planet.
Buzz Aldrin: Cycling Pathways to Mars is available for FREE. Visit https://www.viveport.com/ for more information
Homebound – Immerse yourself in the most beautiful and spine chilling VR experience to date as you experience a series of catastrophic events in the cold void of deep space. Stay calm as you’ll find yourself crashing rapidly towards earth with your one mission – make it out alive as fast as you can. Gravity will always get you home, whether you make it dead or alive is up to you.
Homebound is available for £5.57. Visit https://www.viveport.com/ for more information
Apollo 11 VR – Apollo 11 was a gamechanger. Not only did it land man on the moon, but it shattered previously held notions of what was possible for space travel. Now you can experience this historic event through the eyes of those who lived through it. Take control and fly the command module, land the lunar lander, explore the Moon’s surface and deploy the lunar experiments all before returning to earth in a fiery re-entry. Using a mix of original archive audio and video together with accurate recreations of the spacecraft and locations, get set for an experience that will inspire a newfound respect for the men and women who worked on the Apollo program during NASA’s golden era.
Apollo 11 VR is available for £7.50. Visit https://www.viveport.com/ for more information
