Solar Voyager VR: Travel between all the planets of our Solar System in a realistic Virtual Reality environment designed for virtual reality devices like Cardboard.
Jump from one planet to the next one by selecting buttons with your eyes: look some seconds to a button to click on it.
The planets have realistic textures and effects, and there are the main moons orbiting each planet. Bodies, distances and speeds are scaled to have a more visual representation in the simulation. The starts background correspond to the real starts you would see in space, and the relative position and velocity between the planets is also realistic.
This simulation is powered by Orekit: a low-level space dynamics library developed and maintained by CS Systèmes d'Information.
Enjoy your travel and don't forget to say Hi when you pass by the Earth!
Ratings and Reviews
This game is why VR was created. Every planet is accessible to look at and is very well done. I could spend hours just admiring our solar system through this app. I would absolutely recommend. If I had to change anything, I would add a zoom feature or an ability to move around the planet at my own pace, but it is amazing as is.
I like the interface where you are looking through a window at the planets. The 3D effects and graphics are well done. I would like however to be able to select any planet to look at instead of just what seems to be arbitrarily available to look at. It would also be nice to have more details for each planet (text or narration?) as well as the opportunity to view a planet for a longer period of time. As it stands now in the current version, each planet is only visible for a few seconds before going back to the planet selection screen. Overall a fun app. Keep up the good work!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
