The HTC Vive campus tour departs the Lone Star state and heads up the Midwest to the University of Illinois. The team will be at the new campus for a full week offering demos to students and faculty of the school.
Sorry nearby fans that are interested in a demo, but to be in compliance with university guidelines these demos are strictly for a target audience and the general public is unable to attend these campus demos. We were kind of hoping additional demos would be available in the areas the Vive was visiting, but everything has been kept local to the campuses for now.
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.
There’s a bunch of titles readily available at this point and we bet the traveling Vive gang has more than just the typical demo games installed. If you are getting a demo we suggest being brave and asking for something a little more daring. See if they have Arizona Sunshine installed and get into some Zombie killing.
The HTC Vive demo team will be set up in the NCSA Atrium from 8AM – 5PM all week. Even if the line is built up you should stop by and get your name on the list, then come back before your time slot passes. You won’t be sorry for trying this great product just don’t miss anything important while trying take a test drive.
