Titans of Space is an educational yet awesome Virtual Reality demo. Titans of Space takes you on a short guided tour of a few planets and stars, the point of which is to give the player a sense of scale of just how big these planets and stars are compared to each other. Everything you see is initially shrunk down to 1 millionth of their actual size, which means Earth will appear to be a 12.7-meter-wide holographic ball, rather than the giant 12,756km-wide ball of rock that it is.
Eventually the demo leaves our solar systems and compares our sun with others in the known universe. Wait till you see VY Canis Majoris, 1,420 times the size of our sun.
The demo is "on rails" meaning it is guided. However you can still look around and read the info panel for more detail about the star or planet. Unlike many of the demos out there. Titans of Space supports Oculus Rift DK1 & DK2 as well as GearVR and Google Cardboard. All the demos are downloadable from the following link:
