Marvin is a Google Cardboard app that harnesses Virtual Reality and Curiosity’s data to help us experience Mars like never before.

This project is solving the SpaceBot Stereo Vision challenge.


The Curiosity Rover has sent back terabytes of data so far. NASA has released stunning images received directly from Mars for public viewing. Our project is to use these images to provide for a VR experience to the general public. We develop an app that can be used in conjunction with the openly available google cardboard to see 360 degrees views of mars along with viewing Mars with a stereoscopic vision as if riding the rover itself.

We intend to inspire people to by giving them a surreal experience of being on mars and hence dive in-depth to help gain more knowledge about the fascinating world of space exploration.
