Launch of Apollo 11 HD
VR Education (AIM: VRE; ESM: 6VR), a leading virtual reality ('VR') technology company focused on the education space, is pleased to announce the launch of Apollo 11 HD on HTC Vive, Oculus Rift and Windows Mixed Reality. The Group anticipates that the PlayStation VR version will be available in Q2 2019.
The new High Definition ('HD') version builds on the Group's award-winning Apollo 11 VR showcase experience which was developed in 2016 and provides users the ability to witness the moon landing first-hand in virtual reality, from the viewpoint of the US astronaut
The new HD version is a complete rebuild of all the assets from the original experience with new models, new textures and new animations.
David Whelan, CEO of VR Education, said: "The original Apollo 11 VR showcase experience has been a great success, bringing additional revenue to the Group and also effectively showcasing our technology in advance of the launch of our ENGAGE platform in
"The original Apollo 11 was built when we had a small team of three working for the Group. This new version enhances the user experience greatly as we have had the time and expertise to give the experience a level of polish not achievable before, due to new technology and overall talent available at VR Education today. The coming year represents the 50th anniversary of the moon walk and we believe Apollo 11 HD will be in high demand throughout the next 12 months and beyond."
