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
