Virtual Reality / Mixed Reality
Virtual reality, or VR, refers to computer-generated simulations of 3D environments that users can experience in an immersive way through specialized headsets or head-mounted displays (HMDs).
Mixed Reality, or MR, refers to overlayed virtual simulations over the surrounding environment, typically experienced from either a headset or a screen.
Combined, we refer to these technologies as XR.
The CRC group maintains and provides training for a number of tools in support of these technologies, ranging from simple introductions to VR platforms and apps, to more complex 3D design and animation software, as well as game engines such as Unity 3D. At the VizLab in Coram Library, we have three private workrooms with PCVR workstations and various headsets. Our fleet of headsets currently includes:
- Meta Quest Pro
- Meta Quest 2
- HTC Vive XR Elite
- HTC Vive Pro
- HTC Vive Focus 3
