Thunderbirds in VR

And just because we can… instead of using NASA ISS and spacecraft models as in the ISS VR Experience, I substituted Gerry Anderson Thunderbirds models obtained from the 3D Sketchup Warehouse (search for Gerry Anderson).


Try the web player version here.

And the Windows 64 bit standalone application which will work on 2D screens or in VR on the Oculus Rift is here (zip file of Windows 64 bit app).
Oculus-DK2You can use the arrow keys, page up and page down to move about. If you have a game controller attached, the left stick should move the astronaut, and the right and left bumpers will move you up and down. You can quit the experience using either the “q” or “esc” keys.

Look out for other Gerry Anderson vehicles nearby…. Space:1999 Eagle, Fireball XL5 and Supercar…

Full details of the resources used and the build process for the ISS VR Experience is given in this blog post. The additional Gerry Anderson related models were provided from, e.g., the Sketchup 3D Warehouse – Gerry Anderson. Remember these are fan produced models for a TV show and commercial use is not permitted.
