Heads up Texas A&M! The HTC Vive campus tour has landed on your campus for a first class virtual reality demo.
Well, if this is the first time you’re reading about the demo on your campus you’ve already missed the first day of demos. But if you get up early tomorrow or Wednesday and head over to the Rudder Theater Exhibit Hall around 9AM, you can be one of the first in line for a mind blowing experience.
I can’t even imagine what it’s like to Vive first thing in the morning, but I bet it has to be very stimulating!
For those that like to sleep in, you need to make sure you make it to the exhibit hall before 4 or 5 PM since demos are on a first come, first serve basis. You will likely find fellow classmates and even faculty waiting for a chance to demo the Vive and trust us, you will want to be among those in line. Virtual reality through the Vive is unlike anything you’ve experienced so far.
What does the demo include?
Visitors should expect approximately 20-30 minutes of mind-blowing virtual experiences that only scrape the surface of capabilities VR and the Vive can do. You’ll get some one-on-one time with the Vive Pre, the latest rendition of the developer kit and likely the closest match to the consumer version due out this April.
One of the best titles you’ll get to demo is the Job Simulator game where robots have replaced our basic duties in the workforce and give you a chance to pretend like you have a job. Job Simulator’s developers recently revealed a refreshed look of the kitchen for the Chef role so we’d love to hear your feedback on the new layout.
Demos officially start each day at 10AM and will only last until 6PM. We hope you don’t miss class to try the Vive, but if you do tell your professor it was for research purposes.
