UAE students explore Mars using VR


Dubai’s New Media Academy has launched the region’s first virtual campus on a space station in orbit around Mars.

The campus will allow students to develop innovative content using immersive virtual reality technology. 

Users will also be able to experience transporting down to the surface of Mars in order to explore.

The virtual campus is a first step in New Media Academy’s quest to design an unprecedented learning experience for its students featuring immersive technologies.
