Have you ever wanted to see fire, sparks, and melting metal in school? Well in real-life you could be suspended for that but in virtual reality, anything is possible. A new VR lab experience is available on the VR Chemistry Lab, available for the Meta Quest on the Meta App Lab. This new experience is the fourth chemistry lab simulation that players can do to practice, play, and have fun in the VR Chemistry Lab.
The Thermite reaction releases high amounts of heat and light, enough to melt metals and re-form new ones! Its one of the most exciting demonstrations in chemistry and typically is only performed by teachers. If a student is lucky enough to see this reaction in person, it usually is at a good distance and behind safety partitions (with good reason). In this simulation, students can have a first-hand experience moving through the procedure and don’t have to worry about injuring themselves, injuring others, or burning down the school’s chemistry lab.
So give it a try and experience the fun side of chemistry! Simply update your Meta Quest app if you already own the VR Chemistry Lab or purchase it for only $2.99.
New developments for the VR Chemistry Lab in the future: An interactive molecular world experience detailing the thermite reaction.
