Virtual Reality Lab

CITL's Virtual Reality Lab serves as a research and testing grounds for faculty and students interested in exploring the educational potential of existing VR experiences, or in developing and testing their own VR content. The VR Lab features a full room wireless VR experience (16'x 16') with a HTC Vive Pro head mounted display.  In addition, we have an Oculus Rift used primarily for seated VR experiences like flight simulation. In the past year we're expanded to include a variety of standalone headsets including the Oculus GO, Lenovo Mirage, and the brand new Oculus Quest.

The Virtual Reality lab is a popular destination for smaller classes interested in exploring VR technologies. Schedule a visit for your class to tour the lab. You may also want to check out CITL's TechHub for walk-in VR hours along with 3D printing, scanning, laser cutting and much more.

For courses that are exploring VR production and development, you may want to request a tour of the Innovation Studio which sits adjacent to the VR Lab. Beginning in the Fall of 2019, this 20-person classroom will include VR-ready workstations outfitted with the new Oculus Rift S to support both production and consumption of VR experiences.

The Virtual Reality Lab and Innovation Studio were designed to observe and record the behaviors and learning strategies of users as they explore educational content through this medium. Our staff have media production experience and expertise in shooting and editing of 360º video. Schedule a visit to discuss how we can help further your vr-related projects.
