Personal note: One of those experiences that makes you sit quietly for a moment after it's over. Perhaps the birth of a new artform, and a beautiful retelling of an old Hans Christian Anderson story, The Little Match Girl.

Allumette tells the story of a young orphan girl who lives in a fantastical city in the clouds. After enduring tragedy, she grasps at hope for her future. Loosely inspired by "The Little Match Girl" by Hans Christian Andersen, Allumette is an account of the love a mother and daughter have for one another, and the sacrifices they make for the greater good.

Take a guided journey through the amazing TRAPPIST-1 star system, known to be the home of 7 Earth-size exoplanets orbiting a star that is only a little larger than Jupiter. This experience is based on the best current scientific understanding of what these worlds could be like given their sizes, densities, and proximity to their star.


This experience was developed by the Communications and Education group at Caltech/IPAC and has been released in conjunction with the 15th anniversary of NASA’s Spitzer Space Telescope mission. Spitzer, along with a number of other observatories on Earth and in Space, has contributed to our understanding of the TRAPPIST-1 system. NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory manages the Spitzer Space Telescope mission for NASA's Science Mission Directorate. Science operations are conducted at the Spitzer Science Center at Caltech.

Dreams of Dali

Enjoy the remarkable marriage of art and technology in Dreams of Dali, a virtual reality experience from The Dali Museum (St. Petersburg, FL), as you explore Dali's painting “Archaeological Reminiscence of Millet's ‘Angelus’.” Immerse yourself in the world of the Surrealist master like never before in this encounter, venturing into the towers, peering from them to distant lands and discovering surprises around every corner. We imagine Dali himself, known in his lifetime as what we now call an "earlier adopter" of new technology, would applaud this inspiring homage to his 1935 painting.

This award-winning VR experience has garnered visitor acclaim, online praise and international recognition through a multitude of industry awards, including the prestigious Cannes Cyber Lion GOLD; a Webby People's Voice award; and a Facebook Silver award for Innovation, among others.  https://store.steampowered.com/app/591360/Dreams_of_Dali/

Perspectives: Paradise https://store.steampowered.com/app/1016390/Perspectives_Paradise/

On November 1, 1952, the United States detonated the world’s first hydrogen bomb on Enewetak Atoll in the Pacific Ocean.
All in all, the United States conducted 43 nuclear tests on or near the atoll after the WW2. Local people are still dealing with the aftermath.

In this VR experience you will feel the effects of “Ivy Mike” 10 kilometers (6.2 miles) from ground zero.
Afterwards you will get a detailed look at the structure and effects of a thermonuclear explosion.
You can walk on top of a radioactive waste repository, and meet the people who live in the former nuclear testing area.
