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.

Bringing The Moon To You

Immerse yourself in Moon VR exploration with live data powering the simulation. See the environment changing on the very location where you stand.

What The Fun

Have you ever wondered what is it like to be standing on the moon?

What The Fun presents: BRINGING THE MOON TO YOU!

We have built a Web VR app that allows you to explore the moon using an Oculus Rift. With Oculus Rift's touch controllers, the users can interact with the space objects. We intend to retrieve actual live data from NASA API so that the users have access to real time information of space activities through our VR app.

Not only that, the Web VR that can be accessed via any browser. This means that which means that you and your friends can explore the Moon together through this multiplayer feature.

Our aim is to create an actual representation of object positions from the Moon. For instance, users will be able to see the Earth model which takes the real relative position of the Earth, from the Moon, through the app. Live events such as storms / rain on the moon can be stream through the VR app in the future too.
