Virtual Reality

Our STRAUSS code can used to create immersive, full surround sound experience for application in Virtual Reality (i.e., using ambisonics). As an example of this, you can see below the Stars Appearing excerpt from Tour of the Solar System, re-formated for Virtual Reality. In this YouTube video, you can explore the hemisphere sky by using the arrows in the top left. You should notice that the sounds of the stars appearing can be heard in the correct location as they appear (headphones are highly recommended!). If you have a Virtual Reality headset, you can experience this directly through YouTubeVR.
