Universal Pictures, RYOT and CreateVR deployed state-of-the-art virtual reality tech to create an experience so real, it’s as close as you can get to going to the moon without leaving Earth.
You begin our journey in NASA’s Mission Control, where you can explore and see exclusive video of First Man, including interviews with Oscar-winning director Damien Chazelle (La La Land), and stars Ryan Gosling and Claire Foy about the courage and daring of the Apollo 11 mission.
You are then placed in Armstrong’s shoes — and in his seat — inside the Apollo 11 Command Module, seconds before launch. The interior of the spacecraft is historically accurate and finely detailed in the placement and appearance of every switch, knob, dial and window.
“The virtual-reality experience also includes Armstrong’s famous decision to take over the lunar module’s automatic landing sequence in the minutes before landing because the spacecraft — The Eagle — was steering the crew toward a boulder-filled field.” (space.com)
“The First Man: VR Experience has been specially designed and customized for Voyager” (vrfocus.com)
“(…) the experience fast forwards to day four, where you’ll pilot the Lunar Module, The Eagle, as you attempt to land on the surface of the moon.” (uploadvr.com)
