Virtual Cockroach

Virtual Cockroach

The augmented insect app that allows you to interact and control a realistic virtual representation of a cockroach, not for those susceptible to Entomophobia (insectophobia)!”

Through AR, users are able to take an educational insight into the striking as well as less distinguished features of this six-legged pest, including the wings, thorax and spiracles.

With the easily selectable cockroach control on the app, users are able to simply highlight different features of the 3D insect to see an in-depth description of individual body-parts.

The extended tracking integrated with a user-friendly interface makes the app ideal for exploring the depths of any environment with the refined free-roam analogue control. Ideal for educational and academic studies, or creepy-crawly enthusiasts, Virtual cockroach offers an immersible experience for all. Available for both IOS and Android.
