HP takes us to Mars

August 17, 2018

HP Inc. and a global community of creators unveiled a ground-breaking virtual reality (VR) simulation of what life on Mars could look like for a human population of one million people.

The HP Mars Home Planet program, led by HP and NVIDIA, is the culmination of a year-long engagement with the creative community to simulate life on the Red Planet.

The program attracted over 90,000 creative professionals, architects, engineers and students spanning more than 150 countries. The most innovative ideas were brought to life through a VR experience created by Technicolor that premieres this week at SIGGRAPH, the world’s largest conference on computer graphics. 

“We are living in interesting times when technological advancement is being met by a broad array of foundational space science and planetary research—a confluence that will optimistically serve to accelerate our path toward human exploration and settlement of Mars,” said Dr. Darlene Lim, Principal Investigator, NASA Biologic Analog Science. “Today, people around the world are dreaming and innovating towards this future, and the amazing entries from the HP Mars Home Planet project’s creative community give us a virtual window into what life on Mars could be like for a million members of humanity.”

Universities and schools worldwide also took on the universe-changing effort of reinventing, designing and experiencing life in an urban area of Mars Valley in VR. Supported by HP technology and leaders in higher education, these institutions created teams as part of the Education League for HP Mars Home Planet. Ten universities in Europe and two universities in Australia competed in the project, with Japan conducting a separate contest with 110 submissions—judged separately—to select winners who submitted entries to HP Mars Home Planet.

The global project, pairing co-creation with VR to simulate a utopian civilisation on the Red Planet, received nearly 1,000 entries from the HP Mars Home Planet project’s participants. The final phase culminated with nine winners of its Rendering Challenge. Previously announced were winners of the Concept Challenge and the 3D Modeling Challenge.

The project is powered by Launch Forth, a product design platform powered by a co-creation community of designers, engineers and solvers.
