1st Satellite for Real Time Virtual Reality
SpaceVR is the world’s first virtual reality platform allowing users to Be An Astronaut and experience space firsthand from any mobile, desktop or virtual reality device.
Through the use of 360-degree cameras, SpaceVR technology feeds footage from low earth orbit back to Earth so consumers can experience space travel in immersive virtual reality.
SpaceVR aims to give everyone the opportunity to experience the truly infinite, boundless Universe through virtual reality.
SpaceVR has paid NanoRacks LLC in one lump sum to launch Overview 1, the world’s first virtual reality camera satellite, into Low Earth Orbit with SpaceX CRS-12 going up in June 2017.
Its debut satellite, Overview 1, will use 4K sensors to capture extremely high resolution, fully immersive, 360-degree video of every breathtaking moment that occurs on our home planet.
The content will be viewable on any virtual reality device, ranging from smartphones to Oculus Rift to extreme resolution devices such as the StarVR.
SpaceVR promises to open a new era in connecting consumers worldwide to the beauty of outer space and we are ready to be part of that effort,” believes Jeffrey Manber, NanoRacks CEO.
