Are you intrigued by Virtual Reality (VR)? Have you wondered how VR technology could help you with your research? Come to the NIH Safety, Health & Wellness Day event, where the NIH Library will be giving Virtual Reality demonstrations. The VR demonstrations will be available in the Building 10 south entrance lobby on Wednesday, June 28, 10:30 a.m.–1:30 p.m. on a first-come, first-served basis.
During the demonstration, you will get to try out the Library’s HTC Vive system. Experience cardiovascular fitness in VR while you have fun engaging your whole body in exercises. The Library’s Vive system has room-scale VR which allows the user to walk around and interact with a virtual space through a VR headset and two motion-tracked handheld controllers.
The NIH Library also hosts VR demos on the first Tuesday of each month, 12:30–2:00 p.m. in the NIH Library Media Room. For more information about the NIH Library’s VR demonstrations, please contact NIHLibraryTechnologyHubWorkgroup@mail.nih.gov.
The NIH Library in Building 10 serves the information needs of NIH staff and select Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) agencies. The NIH Library is part of the Office of Research Services (ORS) in the Office of the Director (OD).
