Science On A Sphere Explorer - Seminar and Demo!

SOSx runs in a multi-display setup with a touch screen in museums and schools, and also includes virtual reality support via the Facebook/Oculus Rift. A tour builder application is included to enable teachers and museum staff to create their own tours of custom datasets and regions of the globe. SOSx visualizes satellites in orbit and environmental data at regional and global scales. It also includes interactive scenes (mini-games), such as walking on the moon, piloting a submarine around a coral reef, or surviving a tornado.
