Labster VR on

Labster's biology VR labs are available on the Lenovo Mirage Solo with Daydream and Google Daydream View

What we've created

Labster and Google have partnered together to unlock the physical lab requirements in biology courses. Using virtual reality, students can participate in lab experiences on campus or remotely.

Why use Labster VR?

Labster has created 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 work on Daydream headsets, including Daydream View and the Lenovo Mirage Solo.
