The Apollo 11 VR Experience is currently on Kickstarter seeking €30,000. So far, with 19 days remaining, they are at €12,138
The experience is primary intended as an educational experience but certainly a good experience to anyone.
Using NASA archive footage and audio we have created an inspirational journey that we hope will engage students and give them a better understanding of what took place way back in 1969. We don’t just want kids to read about history we want them to experience history as a living entity that they can relate to.
Will they make their goal? Not sure, but they do have a cool downloadable demo.Download the Apollo 11 VR Demo

The demo starts off on the Apollo 11 launchpad. You make your way up the elevator and into the control module of the Saturn V. As you sit there checking out the gauges, Apollo 11 launches and a few minutes later you're in orbit and objects start to float around you. Check out the view from the window. Pretty neat.
