Lockheed Martin bringing VR-equipped Mars bus to Orlando

Lockheed Martin is bringing their VR-equipped Mars bus to the Orlando Eye April 8th from 10am until 6pm.  If you are interested in space travel, or space exploration, this would be an event not to miss.

“The Mars Experience Bus is a standard school bus painted with landscapes of the Red Planet and cartoon astronauts.

But when you step inside, all of the windows are equipped with virtual reality displays that recreate the Mars surface.

As a driver starts to move, students can see the outside world. As they travel, however, all goes dark and the screens become virtual reality-based displays that simulate the landscape of Mars.”

She is alive…..

Everyone, let me introduce you to Baylee.  She is our 2017 FIRST FRC Steamworks robot.  She is at the UCF area in Orlando for our first competition of the season.  Please stop by and say hi to her, and Team 801 Horsepower.  

Baylee was named after Mentor Jeff’s new daughter.  Baylee is a fighter and absolutely gorgeous.


Without our Sponsors we would be nothing.  Please take a moment to check out our Sponsor page.  If you or your company would like to sponsor Team 801 Horsepower, there is a link on the sponsorship page to our fundraising letter.
