The HTC Vive is now available for use in the Gelardin New Media Center. The Vive is at the forefront of Virtual Reality (VR) technology and is the top product for room-scale VR. Room-scale VR means that you are both visually and physically immersed within the VR experience. The two base stations create a 15' x 15' play area and pick up all of your movements while you wear the headset, allowing you to physically walk around and explore your surroundings. The two wireless controllers give you a very intuitive way to interact with people, places, and things within the VR experience. HTC's partnership with Valve and Steam has created a large library of games, experiences, and simluations that we are constantly updating.
