Report: Samsung collaborates with NASA to create a VR lunar experience
Samsung has launched a 4D lunar gravity VR experience ‘A Moon for All Mankind’ (AMFAM) at the Samsung 837 in New York. It’s a visual and physical VR experience for consumers that uses the Galaxy S9+ and the Gear VR to recreate a fictional moon mission to experience lunar gravity.
To mimic the partial gravity experience of walking on the moon to make the AMFAM feel realistic, Samsung collaborated with the NASA’s team behind the Active Response Gravity Offload System (ARGOS), a system used to train astronauts.
AMFAM VR experience will be a full space mission which includes a briefing about the mission and stepping into a flight suit wearing a Gear VR headset to experience the lunar mission in the gravity offload rig. Consumers will experience what it feels like to walk on the moon.
