We’ve all been to museums at some point in our lives, and usually all the main exhibits are off-limits to visitors, where we can see the exhibits from far, but we can’t really get too close or even touch them. It makes a lot of sense, but at the same time, we’re sure that the experience would be a lot better if we could get up close and personal.

This is where virtual reality (VR) technology comes in handy, and if you’re a dinosaur buff, you’ll be pleased to learn that VIVE Studios has teamed up with the American Museum of Natural History to bring us “T. Rex: Skeleton Crew”. This is a new educational title available on Viveport that will allow users to get up close and personal with the bones and skeleton of the Tyrannosaurus rex.

According to VIVE Studios, “Assemble Tyrannosaurus rex fossil bones to create a magical museum exhibit. Then witness your T. rex come to life, as you travel back in time 66 million years to the end of the Age of Dinosaurs, when flying reptiles glided through the skies and T. rex was the world’s apex predator. Experience T. rex in its natural habitat, a warm and wet environment in what is now Hell Creek, Montana.”

While it’s still not quite the same as touching the actual bones, we reckon that it comes pretty close. It also helps users learn about the anatomy of the dinosaur, especially for kids who might have an interest in being a paleontologist when they grow up.
