Several simulators round out Unified Field’s interactives at the Space Shuttle Atlantis Attraction. The Spacewalk Gesture Recognition Simulator enables guests to don a digital spacesuit, replete with a photograph of themselves in the helmet, and complete virtual space missions. The Robotic Arm Simulator puts guests at the virtual helm of the Canadarm robotic arm, allowing players to capture satellites. Nearby simulations challenge guests to grab a joysick and land the space shuttle or dock it to the International Space Station.

Land the Space Shuttle Atlantis

The landing simulator encourages guests to pilot the Space Shuttle Atlantis back to earth.

Working closely with Unified Field, we did a masterful job of checking sources, speaking with NASA staff, and condensing down complex material. The real goal was to inform visitors while hoping to excite them to learn more.

A host of simulators at the Kennedy Space Center allow visitors to dock the space shuttle at the international space station, land the space shuttle, and even walk in space were created by Unified Field Interactive studio.

The interactive docking simulation lets Space Shuttle Atlantis Attraction visitors pull up to the International Space Station, while the Canadarm simulation allows guests to capture satellites.

Spacewalking Gesture Recognition

A spacewalking simulator uses gesture recognition technology to send Space Shuttle Atlantis guests out into the vacuum of space to complete repair missions.
