Thanks to the Suffolk Cooperative Lending Library program, the Islip Public Library will have access to the HTC Vive Virtual Reality system from March 24 through March 28, 2017. Schedule a 30-minute appointment and transport yourself into another world -- the world of Virtual Reality! Swim underwater, travel to a foreign country, jump off a skyscraper -- these are just some of the virtual reality experiences that will be available. While wearing the virtual reality headset, you will be able to look around in the artificial world, move about in it, and interact with features or items that are depicted inside the headset.
What Exactly is Virtual Reality?
Virtual reality is the term used to describe a three-dimensional, computer generated, interactive environment that you can explore. You become a part of this virtual world and are immersed in its environment - while there, you’re able to manipulate objects or perform a series of actions.
Please note - due to the intensity of the virtual reality experience, you must be at least 13 years old in order to sign up for this program.
Please stop by or call us at 631-581-5933 to find out more and to schedule an appointment.
