The HTC VIVE™ is a leading virtual reality headset released last year. It delivers immersive room scale experiences, enabling new ways to interact in virtual environments. This workshop will provide a snapshot of the rapidly growing VR ecosystem, describing how the Vive differs from other headsets on the market. Participants will learn how to set up the Department of Communication’s Vive system, and demo a few of the most popular VR experiences today.  Andrew Mitrak, Director of Marketing at AxonVR and UW alumnus, will lead the tutorial. He will answer any questions you have about the HTC Vive and virtual reality technology.  Limited seating is available, so please RSVP on EventBrite in advance.
