Virtual Reality at FVRL

Customers can now experience the thrill of virtual reality (VR) during various free programs at FVRL’s 25 locations. Beyond entertainment, VR has many applications including learning and training, and supports Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math (STEAM) learning. With VR, a person can learn how to land a plane, practice a life-saving surgery, or simply battle aliens on another planet – all without ever leaving their current location!

What is Virtual Reality?

VR is an immersive computer-generated, three-dimensional interactive environment. Wearing the HTC VIVE goggles, headphones, and holding motion controllers, participants will be able to move freely around a 10x10 space and try out a mix of virtual games as well as educational experiences.

What Virtual Reality System is FVRL Using?

VR programming at FVRL will feature the use of the HTC VIVE. With stunning graphics, a 110 degree field of view, intuitive controls and HD haptic feedback, the HTC VIVE provides an unparalleled sense of immersion.
