Once Curiosity begins exploring, augmented reality tags will allow the public to have an immersive experience of discovery as it happens.
Learn About the Rover
This 3D interactive experience uses the Unity game engine. It enables delivery of a 3D terrain map of Gale Crater, where Curiosity will land, as well as a 3D model of the rover so you can follow along as if you were there.
Try your own skills in facing the extreme challenges of landing a rover on Mars! This experience uses the Kinect motion sensor on the Xbox 360, Microsoft's home entertainment console. Mars Rover Landing is freely available in the Xbox Live Marketplace and Kinect Central.
Learn all about exploration on Mars with a new character in Kodu, a free Microsoft program that allows students to program their own computer games.
