ProtoSpace is a JPL-developed software package that uses the Microsoft HoloLens mixed-reality platform for rapid collaborative visualization of complex mechanical CAD models. ProtoSpace consists of three subsystems: a model processing pipeline, a web portal for uploading and preparing models, and a networked HoloLens visualization client.
ProtoSpace has pioneered industry-leading immersive visualization capabilities that enable groups of people to collaborate quickly and naturally around complex CAD models, finding and fixing problems earlier in the process at a reduced cost and risk.

JPL developed Spacecraft AR in collaboration with Google. The app uses Google's ARCore technology to bring 3-D spacecraft into users' devices using native mobile augmented reality. ("Native mobile" AR uses the built-in capabilities of a mobile device to interact with 3-D environments and objects.)
Within the Spacecraft AR app, users swipe to select among missions that observe and explore Earth, Mars and the other planets, and choose the spacecraft they would like to see. Once the app detects a flat surface, users simply tap the screen to place the spacecraft into the scene in front of them. They can take and share photos directly from the app and view in-depth information about each mission. And for those using the app in spaces that are large enough, there's even a button to view the spacecraft at their actual sizes.
Role: Producer, Creative Director
OnSight is a multi-platform visualization system that allows users to explore the surface of Mars in an immersive, full-scale, 3D terrain reconstruction. OnSight represents a revolutionary approach to rover operations by combining newly invented capabilities in terrain reconstruction with an innovative mixed reality display.

Access Mars is a WebVR experience developed in collaboration with Google, adapted from JPL's OnSight software. Imagery from NASA's Curiosity rover provided the terrain, allowing users to wander the actual dunes and valleys explored by the spacecraft. Access Mars lets anyone with an internet connection take a guided tour of what those scientists experience. A simple walkthrough explains what the Curiosity rover does and details its dramatic landing in 2012. Users also can visit four sites that have been critical to NASA's Mars Science Laboratory mission: Curiosity's landing site; Murray Buttes; Marias Pass and Pahrump Hills. Additionally, the rover's latest location on lower Mt. Sharp will be periodically updated to reflect the mission's ongoing progress. To date, Access Mars has had more than 15,000 hours of use, from users in all parts of the world.
360 videos are an easy tool for immersive technology to be spread both to any classroom or any home for the public to learn more about NASA missions.
