Experience REAL Virtual Reality at Te Awamutu Space Centre.

We have two VR options:

(1) Free Demo

Up to 2 minutes on the Samsung Gear VR. This is a medium-quality VR experience, enough to give you a good taste of what it's all about. It's comfortable and requires no actions - just relax and enjoy it.

(2) Oculus Rift - $5.00

Up to 10 minutes on our premium interactive VR machine. Our current show is Mission: ISS, in which you're an astronaut finding your way around the International Space Station. Using the touch controllers, pull yourself around in micro-gravity just like the astronauts do. This is a surprisingly realistic experience of floating in space.


Our VR Equipment

We use an Oculus Rift headset, which we believe is the best VR headset available for public installations. It delivers astonishing performance while still being light and comfortable.

The headset is driven by a serious gaming rig featuring an i7-6700K processor, SSD, Nvidia GTX1080 graphics card and plenty more under the hood. We want nothing but the absolute best so you can have the ultimate virtual reality experience.

This PC was built by the gurus at Computer Aid, who spent a lot of time researching and testing the system. We use Computer Aid for all our IT requirements, from gaming computers to network and server issues, and we recommend them highly for all your computing needs.
