Virtual Explorer is a science-fiction styled immersive adventure, in which the viewer pilots a microscopic "nanobot" ship through his or her own blood stream and lymph system. After choosing which cellular character to play, the user performs functions such as cellular navigation, white blood cell recognition and molecular docking, all within a richly rendered computer animation with four-channel spatialized sound. Virtual Explorer was developed in conjunction with UCSD faculty members and Scott Fisher. Fisher's company, Telepresence Media, which installs and supports museum installations of Virtual Explorer on a non-profit basis. The Senses Bureau, an undergraduate student research group, did all design and production. To date, the software has been installed at the Tech Museum in San Jose, Calif. and at the Heinz Nixdorf Museum in Paderborn, Germany, which is the world's largest computer museum.
