Virtual Friday



August 26, 2016
12:00pm - 5:00pm


Event Description

Have you tried VR? As virtual reality (VR) becomes increasingly affordable, more and more immersive experiences are available. The fields of medicine, education, gaming, filmmaking, and art are all moving forward with VR content. NCSU Libraries wants you to experience VR and to help shape its future—on our campus and in our world. Please join us this Friday in the Technology Sandbox at D.H. Hill Library, to try out the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive VR headsets, and the Microsoft HoloLens augmented reality (AR) device. You can also see Ricoh Theta S 360° cameras in action, and try out different sorts of Google Cardboard viewers with your phone. Much of this equipment is already available from NCSU Libraries Technology Lending, and all of it will be soon!  Library staff will assist you with the gear so you’ll have a great experience.
