Space Trash, 2008

Virtual Reality Installation

SPACE TRASH is an immersive Virtual Reality (VR) installation, that combines aspects from VR software engineering, game design, physical interface and visual design.

The application deals with the problem of particles floating in the earth’s orbit, that cause damage to satellites. The players have to collect these particles by manoeuvring a spaceship and controlling a collector arm in a coordinated manner.

Group project within a cooperation between the University of Art and Design Linz and the Virtual Reality Center of the Johannes Keppler University Linz.
