The Challenge | Virtual Space Exploration

Generate Virtual Reality environments for the surface of the Moon and Mars! Obtain 3D models from NASA resources, such as Moon Trek and Mars Trek. Integrate 3D models of surface exploration systems and habitats. Develop and deploy the virtual world at a hosting service.


MoonRide is about VR getting people to experience how it feels to be on another planet!

Space Riders


We built a VR experience where people can explore the Moon surface as a rover, learning how astronauts can live in inhabitable places, and feel like being really there!

We developed the project in Unity, using the GoogleVR SDK and NASA 3D Resources, where we got the 3D models of rovers an habitats. We also used Moon Trek to get 3D sectors of the lunar surface, and for every 3D model we developed handmade colliders, to fit with Unity's faces restrictions.
