Description: The ObserVRtarium is an interactive, room-scale VR, virtual museum experience. Go beyond the glass and get up close with a collection of amazing past and present space artefacts including the Soyuz, ISS, Saturn V, Apollo LEM and Apollo LRV. Using your VR controllers you can manipulate the objects to get a perfect view of every detail. Once you’ve explored the models you can teleport to the objects around the room which are created at an accurate human scale so you can get a real sense of what it is like to stand at the foot of the epic Saturn V rocket that took humans to the Moon and how the Soyuz craft which takes 3 Astronauts at a time plus supplies to the ISS is maybe smaller than you thought!
Review: ObserVRtarium is a virtual museum that features real-life sized models of the Soyuz, ISS, Saturn V, Apollo LEM and Apollo LRV. You can shrink them down to size to look at them in detail or you can read up a little on them, but there isn’t a whole lot of educational content here if I am honest. In fact, there is a lot at all, just a few nice 3D models for you to look at. The good news is it is free so why not take a look for yourself. It is worth a go if you have any interest in space and things like the space station, but there is no game here and there are far better educational apps to explore on the same subject matter if that is what you are after.
