A Documentary in VR
NatureSims combines biological, psychological and ecological research with inventive virtual and augmented reality technology to create enjoyable and educational VR and AR experiences.
The Goal: to allow players to defy the limitations of their own bodies, to experience the world from the vantage of other living creatures—a vastly different and mind-expanding reality. Step outside your perspective and look at the world in an entirely new way.
See the world through the eyes of our animal cousins. Confront the challenges they face as a matter of course. Experience their highs and their lows as they wind their way from one challenging stage of life to the next.
Connect with non-human living beings in a way not heretofore possible in a format that is part simulation, part video game. Now, you can live the nature documentary as an active participant.
The key to our work is translating academic research into immersive nature simulations suitable for all ages.
We are a growing team of educators, researchers, 3D artists, and programmers, all with a passion for the natural world and dedicated to reimagining the nature documentary for the metaverse.
