In our Virtual reality system can experience the motion on the moon, seeing its surface and gain information about it. Also in the system we can hear some sound effects that help the traveler to live the scene and engage with the space.
That wasn’t our only vision about the VR Moon journey, so for a future work the journey could be continued by:
1- adding information about the part of the surface that the user see for education purposes.
2- adding the ability to navigate from planet to another using an imaginary gate or something, so the traveller will see more surfaces while being in the space.
For the development of our VR system the resources we used:
1- Moon trek, from where we get the moon object
2- Sketchfab , from where we get 3D models
All of that was integrated using unity game engine
We selected this region of the moon to explore, since one interesting areas of the Moon or Mars could be near the North or South Poles.
Challenges we faced:
1- Extract object file with good quality from moon trek.
2- There wasn't enough time to complete the prototype
