    NASA Mars 2030 VR Project Makes You Feel Like You Are Actually On Mars

    Gear  /  Projects
    A new virtual reality experience is being created which has been backed by NASA called Mars 2030 and is being created to provide an immersive application that allows users to feel in some way what it is like to stand on the surface of Mars.
    Mars 2030 was developed using scientifically accurate satellite imagery and data gathered in years of exploration missions and has been created using NVIDIA VRWorks technologie.
    Check out the trailer below to see what you can expect from the Mars 2030 project which is being created to provide the feeling of standing on Mars. Justin Sonnekalb, a game designer working on the Mars 2030 project explains :
    "We want you to feel like you’re standing on mars. – We want you to feel like you’re actually there. NASA is providing technical expertise to FUSION through a Space Act Agreement to make the first Mars surface VR experience based on actual operational and hardware concepts that the agency is currently studying.
    Mars 2030 was created by FUSION in collaboration with NASA and is powered by Nvidia GeForce. It simulates being on the Red Planet in a level of graphics fidelity that is only possible with NVIDIA VRWorks technologies. Our CEO, Jen-Hsun Huang, introduced it to Steve Wozniak to try out during ‎GTC 2016.
    In a recent interview NVIDIA’s Zvi Greenstein, GM of GeForce Desktop explained a little more about the experience :
    You basically have the real Martian terrain… the real topography with rocks… the lightning model is accurate, the gravity model is accurate… the development team recorded the actual sound from the rover. – The rover, the habitat [modules], the labs… whatever you see in this application is based on actual CAD models provided by NASA…"
