The Extended Reality (XR) Space in the Innovation & Research Commons (I&RC) of the Auburn University Libraries is now open by reservation to the campus community to come and experience virtual reality and what it can do in research and teaching.
Equipment currently available in the XR Space includes both Meta Quest 2 units and the HTC Vive Pro Eye, with a range of available titles including the award-winning Beat Saber.
Faculty have been using the XR Space’s technology in research designed to surround students and participants in an immersive learning environment, whether that be educating patients on a new diagnosis, or learning about far away places by experiencing them through 360-degree video.
Individual students and faculty from all colleges can now reserve time to learn about and use the equipment for work or play. I&RC staff will be on hand to answer questions, assist users with the equipment, and make sure they have an overall positive, educational, and safe experience.
