The HTC Vive Campus Tour is currently giving demos to students and faculty members of Purdue University. The Vive team began demos yesterday and will be onsite daily until Thursday evening at the COREC Atrium on Purdue’s campus.
For those on the campus, head over to the COREC Atrium before 8PM to get a taste of virtual reality through the best PC-based VR system about to hit the market. Students and faculty will be amazed by the tingling sensations virtual experiences like TiltBrush and Blu give you. Each one unique as one explores the bottom of the ocean and the other introduces you to a whole new kind of canvas; not one limited to a wall, but one that is all around you.
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. We’ve also just learned that this experience will be included with the Vive, for a limited time only.
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.
Where and When?
The Purdue University Campus Tour will take place at the COREC Atrium and is for students and faculty only due to guidelines. You can show up as early as 9AM tomorrow and Thursday to sign up to be one of the first for a demo which typically kicks off at 10AM and circulates the crowd until 8PM.
