Virtual Reality

Virtual Reality (in-library experience)

Virtual Reality is a part of The Playground at FVRL and an in-library experience.

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.

Why Have Virtual Reality at FVRL?

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 Virtual Reality System is FVRL Using?

VR programming at FVRL features 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.
