Virtual reality is here! Book time on one of our gaming computers and explore new sights and sounds with the HTC Vive.
What is the Vive?
The Vive is a virtual reality headset that uses room-scale tracking technology, high definition OLED displays, and intuitive motion controls to put you in an immersive simulated environment.
What can I do with the Vive?
Virtual reality is still a relatively new way to engage with media; new applications and interactions are constantly being developed. Some sample experiences people have shared in the Makerspace include:
- Viewing 360° panoramic movies from exotic locales
- Exploring haunted mansions
- Journeying through the human circulation system
- Collecting chicken eggs
- Painting with light
- Spacewalking on the International Space Station
- Defending an interdimensional rift with sword and shield
How do I book time?
Everyone can book up to one hour on our gaming computers with their library card. Please speak with a library staff member at 780-944-5342 to reserve a spot up to a month in advance.
