Landing on the Moon was one of those moments in history that stopped the world for a while and even today, the thought of humans walking on the Moon is the stuff that legends are made from. But, it does not stop there, the Apollo space programme may have ended a long time ago, but with the help of new technology we will soon be able to walk in the footsteps of Neil Armstrong. It’s all down to virtual reality and access to the NASA footage, using Oculus Rift the world of NASA will come to life right before the user’s eyes. Image that feeling, imagine you were there.
The features available are; an accurate digital display of the Saturn V rocket, the Command Module, the Lunar Lander, Astronauts and the Launch Tower. There is some terrific and original real time audio taken from the actual NASA Control, the Command Module, and Lunar Lander recordings. As well as being able to see some interviews from the Astronauts themselves and a cool guided tour or you prefer an interactive experience based on the users choices.
The project is hoping to take off this year and you too can get involved with a pledge starting from just five Euros, but the best options with cool stuff are priced up to two thousand Euros.
