Special Thanks

Space Foundation

This app is co-sponsored by the Space Foundation.

In addition to personal time spent on this project, extra special thanks goes to the Space Foundation team, supplying a Google Cardboard viewer, an iOS developer account (used for other projects and soon this one) and even a few on-the-clock training hours to dedicate towards VR development research (not to mention a week or more of in-office hours to finish up the app). You too can help the Space Foundation achieve their mission to inspire, enable and propel, by contributing to this and other projects. :D
