Description: For nearly two decades, Stanford University’s Virtual Human Interaction Lab has been a destination for world leaders, corporate executives, students, tourists, and community members to learn about the science behind Virtual Reality (VR).

It was simple – every Friday at 4pm, the first 24 people who showed up got a tour of the lab. Soon one tour a week wasn’t enough to meet demand as groups from all over the world became curious about this new technology. Over the years, at least 15,000 visitors made the trip. But now, travel to Stanford is no longer required. We are bringing the lab to you.

Review: There isn’t a whole lot to say about ‘Virtual Becomes Reality: A Stanford VR Experience’, it is a virtual advert as such for Stanford university. In short, this is a virtual tour of their ‘Virtual Human Interaction Lab’ which seemed to be a hit with students. But I am not a student and I really couldn’t care much for the pathetic attempt to make this app. It’s not interesting, it’s not worth the download and even if you do have dreams of going to Stanford University this app might well put you off. With it being such an esteem Uni I really thought they would have tried a lot harder than this mess of an app.
