Virtual Reality Tools Available for Mars Explorers – That Means You!

Now that NASA’s Curiosity Mars rover has reached the red planet, you can keep an eye on the mission in 3D.

Best yet…without need for special glasses! But you will need to install the Unity web player in order to begin!

To enjoy a virtual experience that allows you to follow Curiosity’s movement on Mars, go to:

http://mars.jpl.nasa.gov/explore/curiosity/

And if your fingernails have started to grow back after Curiosity’s nail-biting landing, try your own skill at landing on Mars thanks to XBOX/Live.

This game requires a Kinect™ Sensor.

You can use your body to direct the craft and control thrusters as you descend.

The Games on Demand version supports English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Danish, Dutch, Finnish, Greek, Hungarian, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Swedish, Japanese, Korean, and Chinese.
