VR Sally Ride for iOS

By UC San Diego Free

Developer's Description

Experience a virtual reality tour aboard Scripps Institution of Oceanographys newest research vessel, R/V Sally Ride. This app takes viewers on an interactive tour of the exterior of the ship, from the working deck just a few feet above the surface of the ocean all the way to the mast more than 70 feet up. See what its like to live and work aboard one of the worlds most capable oceanographic research vessels as a crew member or scientist. Check out state-of-the-art equipment used to deploy and recover scientific instrumentation used to study the ocean. On the back deck is the ships A-frame, which can handle a 30,000-pound load. Make your way to the upper decks to see the winches and cranes as they stand ready to lower research gear over the side of the ship. Each winch has 10,000 meters of wire spooled onto it, and the crane can lift more than 10,000 pounds, even in rolling seas.

View this app using any phone with a gyro sensor, or for the full experience view using Google Cardboard or a similar virtual reality viewer that is equipped with an input screen trigger.
