Nobel Museum Collaborates With HTC Vive For VR Space Exhibit

The Nobel Museum is collaborating with HTC Vive to create Exploring Matter, a Vive VR exhibit at the Nobel Museum Exhibition in Dubai in February 2017. The exhibit will also be shown in the Nobel Museum in Stockholm, and the Exploring Matter VR experience will be globally available as a free app on Viveport.

Exploring Matter aims to bring discoveries from some of the greatest cosmologists and physicists to life through VR, highlighting the Big Bang, the Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights), the sun’s fusion process, gravitational waves and radio waves.

Rikard Steiber, President of Viveport and Senior Vice President of VR at HTC explained VR’s potential to bring us closer than ever to scientific phenomena, “Thanks to VR, we can experience events in ways that transcend physical reality, like being there when the Big Bang happens, peeking into the sun to understand one of the most powerful reactions in our universe, or even just having the chance to view the Northern Lights up close.”
