Primary Uses and Options
PALEO Museum VR allows players to view ancient dinosaurs and other fossils from a 1:1 perspective. In other words, the true sizes of these extinct beasts can be fully appreciated. Each creature is accompanied by a short description, so this game can be ideally suited for educational purposes. The user is able to freely navigate throughout a virtual museum and he or she can choose which displays are the most interesting. Unlike real-world locations, there are no barriers or ropes. So, each skeleton is approachable.
PALEO Museum VR offers an on-screen menu for quick navigation from place to place. It is likewise possible to teleport between two different locations and each skeleton is scientifically accurate. A semi-transparent path is also provided in the event that the user wishes to physically walk from location to location. This game requires the HTC Vive VR headset.
