“What is it like to walk in someone else’s shoes? Books allow us to imagine it, and movies allow us to see it, but VR is the first medium that actually allows us to experience it”, Nick Mokey, Digital Trends.
Come to The Library and visit VRoom, a dedicated VR and tech space to find out exactly what it’s like to walk in someone else’s shoes. Use the HTV Vive VR headset to try flying over the globe visiting exotic destinations, twirl a lightsabre on Tatooine, paint a 3D picture in mid-air, or travel inside the human body.
VRoom also has a 3D printer. You can download a plan from an open access website, such as GitHub, and use our 3D printer to make a model of something. We’re open to all uses so you’re only limited by your imagination and intent.
The purpose of VRoom is to engage the MQ community in creative thinking, enhance learning outcomes in the student cohort, and demonstrate how technology and research can augment one another.
You’ll find VRoom near the Collection Point on level 2 of the Library. Staff on the desk can demonstrate and guide you on booking. For more information and full tech specs see the VRoom Guide.
Used the space or have ideas or feedback? Use #VRoom to communicate your thoughts and ideas and engage with other likeminded users.
