Virtual Reality: Make Your Own Viewer at the TEC Lab!

Have you wanted to experience virtual reality (VR) but aren't ready to spend the big bucks on an Oculus Rift or an HTC Vive? Did you know your could make a working VR viewer using just your smartphone and some cardboard?  Now you can! Using a Google Cardboard viewer and a free app on your phone, you can watch 360 degree videos and interact with immersive 3D environments.  

Come to the TEC Lab on Thursday, March 29, between 11:00am-1:00pm AND 6:00pm-8:00pm.  We will supply free Google Cardboard viewers, assemble them, and show you how to experience this growing VR world of free videos and images.  We will also have some other types of viewers on hand for you to try.  No smartphone?  That's OK - we'll have some other devices on hand for you to use.

Remember, if you attend two or more of our library events in Spring 2018, you will be entered in a drawing for a Kindle Fire tablet.

All are welcome to attend. Please drop by at any time during each two hour workshop.
