Come one, come all! Whether you’re a VR first-timer, an immersive data visualizer, a researcher or a developer, an artist in search of a new medium, an instructor curious about how to use the tech in class, a student of storytelling, or some other type of human being, VR Open Hours are for you! Take our HTC Vive, Oculus Rift, and other headsets for a spin, and talk to us about your ideas. We love to connect people with hardware, software, and each other.
