Virtual Reality or VR has been around for a while but it has seen a big push recently as products for PC, Console, and Mobile devices have tried to drive it into the consumer and corporate markets. The promise of creating an immersive alternative reality where one can relax, engage, and even educate has been a dream of man for a long time, but is the current crop of VR everything they promise? Join us for this edition of Gaileo Science Cafe as we discuss just what VR really is, what it can do, and what it can’t...yet.
Mason Game and Technology Academy and Virginia Serious Games Institute will be present before and after the talk to show off some of their tech (VR/AR) and offer insight into how to learn more about the innovative new technologies. Learn More
