The Meyer Library has recently acquired two sets of Google Cardboards as an alternative offering to our virtual reality services at Music and Media. The Google Cardboard is simply a VR viewer that works with a smartphone. If your smartphone is relatively new (Android 4.1 or iOS 8.0), you can view 360 degree videos and photos, interactive maps, explore VR apps installed in your phone. Google has also made the Cardboard specifications open to all, so you can make one of these VR viewers yourself if you have the time, patience, and right resources. To check out a Google Cardboard, visit the Music and Media desk on the Second Level. If you don’t have a smartphone, you can still experience VR using our VIVE VR headset. Learn more about virtual reality on our VR libguide. Make a reservation to use our VR headset, take a break from your desk, and enjoy whale watching under the ocean for a few minutes this week!
