Liftoff VR for Google Cardboard - Launch Falcon Rockets
By Neel Murarka
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
Have you ever wanted to launch a rocket to the stars? Liftoff VR enables you to experience that along with the added challenge of landing the booster rocket back on a drone ship after successfully deploying a satellite to space. All you need is a Google Cardboard Viewer, your iPhone, and a few minutes to experience something magical.
Liftoff VR was built because VR is an amazing new medium to tell stories in and SpaceX is a spectacular company that is going to change humanity. We are incredibly huge fans of both!
***TOP RATED VR EXPERIENCE WITH LOTS OF 5 STAR REVIEWS***

What's New in Version 3.0
We've been hard at work to improve this VR experience based on your feedback. Even more exciting is that since we've been working on this update SpaceX successfully launched and then landed the Falcon 9 which is a historic achievement. Congrats to everyone at SpaceX and we hope you enjoy the challenge of landing the Falcon Heavy on a drone ship yourself!
Here is what we got fixed up for you in this official 3.0 release:
- Support for iOS 8.x
- Updated graphics
- Bug fixes and code optimizations
We've also colonized Mars but keep that between us for now. ;-)
First of all, I live in Florida, and I love to step out to my yard to see the Space Ace rockets (I also saw the last flight of the space shuttle) and this thing is SO GOOD it almost made me cry. Me, a 45yr old father of two. This is incredible, the ONLY thing I would add here is some kind of "platform" on the rocket that we can "stand" on, because feeling the floor under my feet kinda took me off the illusion. I used the $20 VR Box V2 that eBay has, I can only imagine how good would this look on an expensive one.
I will be watching this developer closely, because I'm already eager to see what he will do next. He is so lucky to have Elon Musk contributing. I would gladly leave my federal job to go map floors at Space X just to say that I work for that genius. Great Job, man.
Note that you don't have to put your phone into any kind of contraptions, just hold your palm in the middle of the screen so that each eye sees only half of the screen. Relax the eyes and after a while you can even remove the palm and the 3D effect will still be there until you snap out of it.
My only gripe is that they use a "soundtrack" from a shuttle mission.
Very cool app. I wish there was more
Very cool laugh it starts off with a closer view of the rocket getting ready for lift off. He gets a view the rocket friend talk to you as it lifts off into space and breaks apart. You have to then navigate the thruster to a landing pad in the ocean.
I wish you get to choose different Rockets because the one use here up close looks like a giant wiener.
