Virtual microscope lab

A VR hardware set-up that allows people to see and manipulate the microscopic elements that are normally hidden from the human eye; our digital VR version of an electron microscope is educational, engaging and plain fun.

A hands-on experience

The Virtual Reality microscope combines VR goggles mounted on a stand and a motion capture sensor to create a digital rendering of what it might be like to work with an electron microscope. The experience allows you to manipulate cells and other minute matter with your own hands in virtual reality. Simply select a lab dish and zoom in on brain tissue, a virus or skin tissue. Zoom in again to examine the chromosomes or to look at DNA from every angle you want.

Wide application

This interactive VR set-up lends itself well to educational purposes and can be combined with all kinds of content. Apart from exploring the building blocks of the human body, it could also allow you to dive into a termite hill or examine chemical reaction up close. The range of possible themes is endless. This and the fact that it allows visitors to get an interactive VR experience without having to wear VR goggles on their head, make this system particularly suitable for exhibitions and museums.
