Take a Walk on Mars from your Living Room!

Posted: Updated:

Curious about the unknown terrains of the Red Planet?  Well, thanks to new technology  from Google and NASA you've got a chance to take a walk on Mars.

Access Mars was released this week Thursday.  The technology virtually transports you to Mars from anywhere. 

Access Mars lets users wander the actual dunes and valleys explored by NASA's Curiosity rover.  It simulates walking on the red planet and provides close-up views of discoveries.

It was built using WebVR, which lets you see virtual reality in your browser without installing any apps.  You can view it on a computer, phone or through a virtual reality headset.

Visit Access Mars for more information on the experience, by clicking here.
