Wendelstein 7-X fusion device per VR viewer

The virtual tour conducts you through the Wendelstein 7-X research device at Greifswald, the world’s largest fusion device of the stellarator type.


Viewing with a virtual reality headset, one can roam around in the plasma vessel of Wendelstein 7-X, in the experimentation hall and among the facilities for microwave heating.

This is how it works:
Using a virtual-reality viewer, one can roam around in the plasma vessel of ASDEX Upgrade and inspect what’s happening on the roof, downstairs and in the control room. Depending on the type of viewer, this is accomplished directly with the PC screen or by smartphone with gyro function. The smartphone link: www.sternenmaschine-vr.de

Click below on the goggles symbol to enter the virtual-reality mode: The screen splits in two, one bit for each eye. Put on the headset or attach the smartphone to the viewer – now you can look around in any direction. Via the VR setup link, which briefly appears below on the split screen, the image can be adapted to the smartphone or headset used. The box-shaped selector switches bottom left give access to the various sites.

Technical requirements for mobile devices: gyro function, acceleration sensor.
Smartphones: Google OS – from Android 4.1; Apple – from iOS 8
