– Interact with objects and buildings of various periods of the world history. See their interiors and curious details.
– Are you good in geography? Can you recognize famous sites around the world and localize them on a huge interactive globe? If so, take a chance and try to beat the high scores of the most known travelers on this fun and addictive game.
– Experiment inside a functional science laboratory, observe several procedures and be careful not to break anything!
– Do you like animals? Take an opportunity to study them and their habitats. See details of the cells and understand the differences between them by interacting with all the organelles.
– Have you ever tried mixing colors? How about shooting colored balloons into targets in the shortest time possible?

Buzz Aldrin: Cycling Pathways to Mars

HTC Vive
As NASA prepares to send the first humans to Mars, 8i and Time Inc’s LIFE VR have collaborated with the celebrated astronaut and historical icon to create a one of a kind virtual reality experience.
In the world’s first holographic legacy VR project, created by 8i, viewers will have a unique opportunity to ‘meet’ the astronaut through his hologram today, and future generations will be able to experience Aldrin’s legacy, long after mankind has made the journey to Mars.
Dr. Aldrin is an American astronaut best known for piloting the Lunar Module on the Apollo 11 mission in 1969, and one of the first men to set foot on the moon. While it was a historic achievement, he wants his legacy to include laying the groundwork for a permanent human settlement on Mars, and he has a plan.
In Buzz Aldrin: Cycling Pathways to Mars, journey with Dr. Aldrin from his landing site on the moon to Mars as shows you first hand his plan for inhabiting the Red Planet. To create the hologram, Aldrin was recorded by 8i using volumetric capture and proprietary technology that brings photorealistic holograms of humans into virtual, augmented, and mixed reality in an easy and scalable way. The environment was created by 8i in collaboration with Loot and with stunning visual effects from FuseFX, and is appropriate for all ages. It was produced by 8i in partnership with Soylent.

The Stanford Ocean Acidification Experience

HTC Vive
Most people have never heard of ocean acidification—the process by which the ocean becomes more acidic as it absorbs carbon dioxide (CO2) that has been emitted into the atmosphere. Visualizing the impact to marine is challenging. As a solution, Stanford researchers have produced a virtual underwater ecosystem to allow you to observe firsthand what coral reefs are expected to look like by the end of the century if we do not curb our CO2 emissions.
With funding from the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation and the Stanford Woods Institute for the Environment, Stanford researchers have designed an educational experience that makes the impossible possible: watch the ocean absorb invisible CO2 molecules, a coral reef degrade and marine life disappear as the ocean acidifies. Each step in the journey is based on decades of marine science research.
