Google launched our partnership at Google I/O 2018. Watch the video for a taste of what’s to come.

Why use Labster VR?

Labster is creating a set of 30 undergraduate biology virtual reality lab experiences covering the subjects of cell and molecular biology, ecology and physiology. They are designed to help you improve access to labs on campus and virtually, scale your biology program, and provide exposure to emerging technology.

Each virtual lab experience includes:

  • Defined learning goals
  • Engaging 360 animations
  • Interactive experiments with simulated data

The labs will work on Daydream headsets, including Daydream View and the Lenovo Mirage Solo.
