Yesterday, Chris Madsen, who works in business development at Immersive VR Education (the creators of the Engage social VR platform), gave me and Andrew a personal guided tour of Engage. Among other experiences, we visited the surface of Mars, and took a look at an interactive model of the Mars Curiosity rover:
We also visited a talk show set:
And we wrapped it up at a virtual recreation of the Neolithic henge monument at Avebury in England:
The Curiosity experience included a look at how the rover landed on the Mars surface; it was amazing to watch the entire procedure unfold!
Chris has some pretty great stories to tell about the early days of social VR development from five years ago, so I hope to interview him this fall for my Metaverse Newscast show. Thanks to my producer Andrew to taking these pictures using the Snapshot feature in Engage!
