Coinciding with Nobel Week commemorating the Nobel Prize Award Ceremony, HTC and the Nobel Museum have partnered up to create the first VR experience showcasing the contributions of Nobel laureates. The VR experience “Exploring Matter” takes you on a journey through time and space to bring discoveries from some of the greatest cosmologists and physicists to life through VR.
The Nobel Museum and HTC Vive are creating the VR app for a Vive VR exhibit at the Nobel Museum Exhibition in Dubai in February 2017. The VR exhibit will also be shown in the Nobel Museum in Stockholm, and available globally as a free app on Viveport, HTC’s VR app store.
“We’re thrilled to partner with the Nobel Museum as they join virtual reality ecosystem, recognizing the power of VR to deliver memorable and lasting experiences,” said Rikard Steiber, President of Viveport and SVP of VR at HTC. “We believe that the mysteries of space and physics can best be explained when you experience the breakthrough achievements of Nobel Prize winners in VR – imagine being there when the Big Bang happens, or view the Northern Lights up close.”
