01 Sep Virtual Reality Checkout Services
By Tony Sams
Do you need access to a virtual headset for a class, meeting with colleagues, hanging out with friends, or just playing games? The Marriott Library has you covered! We have added over 35 new systems to our checkout service and are continuing to add more each month. Currently, we have PlayStationVR, Vive, Vive Pro, Oculus Rift, Oculus Rift S, and Oculus Quest. In the next week, we will be adding the new Vive Cosmos Elite. All headsets are available on a 30 day loan period. Head over to the Knowledge Commons Desk or see the link to our Equipment Checkout Process.
For fall 2020, we have added a second VR classroom to accommodate social distancing protocols. MLIB 1008 and MLIB 1009 are now twin-classrooms. Each classroom features 6 VR systems. Just like the original VR classroom, the additional classroom has Valve Index HMDs, Valve Controllers (Knuckles), and NZXT PCs with Zotac 2070 GPUs to support the immersive needs of developers and gamers. Please see the Marriott Library’s Classroom Information webpage to get started with scheduling a room for your group or class.
Do you need help with getting started in VR? Would you like to learn how to integrate VR into your class? I can help! New this fall, we are offering virtual and online consultations. Please see the webpage to schedule a consultation or click on the link below to get started.
