From our Scientifics Brand Manager:
“Of all the new Virtual Reality kits produced by designer Steve Rad, I find the love and attention to detail that Steve and his creative team put into the VR Atlas to be the most impressive. Why? I’ve personally visited a few of the places that you too will travel to digitally using this technology and I can testify that this experience is authentic. For example, there is an opportunity for you to explore an underground cenote in the Mexican Yucatan with VR Atlas. A few years ago I swam in that sink hole with my family and re-visiting it with the VR Atlas raised the hairs on the back of my neck! It’s THAT amazing!
“This is not just some updated View Master viewer. This is an enriching, fully immersive experience for kids and adults alike. Ever wanted to experience the Aurora Borealis? I have. Now that I explored it with VR Atlas, I’m committed to traveling north to do so in person. Don’t hesitate to buy this product. It will definitely inspire you to start traveling. But if you can’t travel, this may be the next best thing!"
What is Virtual Reality?
Virtual Reality (VR) is an immersive, completely computer-generated environment. Immersion is achieved using a VR headset or goggles which encapsulates the user’s entire field of vision.
What is Augmented Reality?
Augmented Reality (AR) uses the user’s real surroundings and adds virtual information such as photo filters, moving characters, or navigation. AR is not designed to be fully immersive and may only require use of a smartphone camera.
