Have you ever wanted to travel to another planet and explore what could possibly be? What kid hasn’t. The “Mars Experience” gives you just that. Well sorta… The Mars Experience Bus is a 3-Dimensional, fully immersive, virtual reality experience that takes VR to the next level.
Designed and engineered by global technology company Lockheed Martin in collaboration with Framestone VR capabilities and software from Unreal Engine, the Mars Experience Bus takes you out of this world.
Inside what appears to be a boring and traditional school bus, you’ll find 4K displays beaming ashy red light and video feed of the martian landscape. The bus, a fully equipped VR experience, knows every turn, hill and bump that you come across reflecting it in the displays. That’s right, this VR experience is so immersive that the bus’ technology understands the movement/mapping and pairs it with video and sound clips of Mars. It’s like Mars is moving right along with you!
Not only is this experience stimulating and mesmerizing, but it also offers an educational and potentially revolutionary aspect to the world of VR and digital signage.
Seeing VR being used for immersive educational purposes is a dream come true and we’re excited to see what’s next for modern engagement and education.
p.s. Hey Mars Experience, if you’re planning to come to California sometime let us know!
