Cardboard puts virtual reality on your iPhone. The Google Cardboard app helps you set up a Cardboard viewer and includes a few experiences to get you started:

Explorer: Explore exciting environments.
Exhibit: View 3D objects from a museum collection.
Urban Hike: Take a hike through iconic cities around the world.

Kaleidoscope: Enjoy a fun stereoscopic take on the old classic.

The Star Wars app is your official mobile connection to a galaxy far, far away.

With a dynamic interface, the Star Wars app immerses you in breaking news, rich media, social updates, special events, and interactive features. Here’s where the fun begins: Immerse yourself in Jakku Spy, a first-of-its-kind serialized Google Cardboard Virtual Reality (VR) feature that ties directly to Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Introducing Discovery VR, a new way to see your world. Discovery has always been about driving curiosity – exploring new places, characters and ideas. Virtual reality allows us a new opportunity to tell these kinds of stories, immersing you in experiences like never before.

Have you ever wanted to launch a rocket to the stars? Liftoff VR enables you to experience that along with the added challenge of landing the booster rocket back on a drone ship after successfully deploying a satellite to space. All you need is a Google Cardboard Viewer, your iPhone, and a few minutes to experience something magical. 

A universe of virtual reality experiences.

Welcome to the first version of the VR/Exposition. This exposition has been created for the Zeiss VR One and Google Cardboard headsets. We are investigating new ways to connect the real art world to the virtual world. This virtual reality exposition has been created in cooperation with two artist:

Patrick Hughes (London)
This artist makes 'reverspective' art that moves whilst you walk around it. We virtualised one of his works to demonstrate this in a virtual environment.

Cathalijn Wouters (Amsterdam)

Cathalijn makes lovely paintings of abstract art. She uses a combination of paint and charcoal. Let yourself me inspired by the beauty of her art.
