Mars Is A Real Place is a short slideshow of amazing stereoscopic Martian landscapes in virtual reality.

This program currently requires an Oculus RIFT (DK2 or better recommended). It does NOT yet currently support the retail Rift! Update coming soon.

More than 60 high-resolution stereoscopic 3D images have been carefully curated and presented for comfortable viewing. The slideshow is set to music, and comes with supporting information for those that want to delve a little deeper into each landscape.

Images include shots of the surface from orbit, a few panoramas as seen from the surface, and some bonus imagery.

Headphones are recommended.


This is Version 1.2b (released Nov 14th, 2015), which is built to work with Oculus Runtime 0.7 or newer. (It does NOT yet currently support the retail Rift! Updates coming soon.) It includes a Favorites feature, along with a new panorama and several new orbital images.


Changes since 1.2:

Improved image clarity

Reduced app size

Included a shot of the 'Ares 3' landing site from 'The Martian', along with a shot of Phobos, the setting for the original DOOM game.


Performance: I'm getting around 280-300 FPS on a Nvidia GTX 660.

Hope you enjoy this!
