Oculus Rift: Home

Oculus Rift Immersive 3D technology is available in the University Libraries for graduate student and faculty use. Demos are also conducted for undergraduates to experience the technology.

What is the Oculus Rift?

The Rift is a virtual reality head-mounted display developed by Oculus VR. The Rift is a high resolution, low persistence LED display which combines with a low latency run-time environment. The Rift is available on for use in combination with Microsoft PCs. 



Rift Demonstrations are conducted for anyone interested in the technology. Sign up for a demonstration at the link below. You will be able to try out the rift and see how it works. Priority is given to those who register. Demonstrations last for one hour.
