Virtual Reality Zone

The AR/VR provides the virtual reality experience to patrons. VR involves using 3D graphics and advanced interactions to immerse a real-world user in a simulated environment. The VR/AR zone has Oculus Rift, Dell VR’s and a high-performance gaming laptop. This can help students in game designing.


Oculus Rift is a set of virtual-reality goggles that will work with your gaming desktop or laptop. Picture a set of ski goggles but instead of miles of fresh powder, you're transported into space or underwater. The Rift accomplishes this using a pair of screens that displays two images side by side, one for each eye. A set of lenses is placed on top of the panels, focusing and reshaping the picture for each eye, and creating a stereoscopic 3D image. The goggles have embedded sensors that monitor the wearer's head motions and adjust the image accordingly. For more information please click here


With Windows Mixed Reality, there is an escape into a world of imagination. One can personalize the virtual home with exceptional content like travel, sports, culture, live concerts, games like Minecraft, and more. You can surround yourself with applications from 20K available titles, run movies in your virtual theater, open a browser on a second screen. It's your own multiplex of multiple apps with you at the center of every adventure. For more information please click here
