We at the XR Center strongly encourage the exploration of the technology we have to offer. Our demo library has been curated to include as many fields of study as possible. We want our visitors to see the multitude of ways they can use this medium. Our goal is to promote the utility of VR, AR, and 360 media, and to remove any barriers that participants might feel when entering this emerging field. Get inspired, and once you have a concept, we will do our best to provide the tools and assist and guide you need to realize your vision.
