Projects:2019:VR/Gaming setup

From Pixelbar Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

In 2018 Someone donated their HTC Vive VR headset to the space, in addition to that we also have (or used to have) a oculus rift DK1.

This prompted us to make a VR/Gaming setup for the space.

This project was finished in February 2019 with a PC that can be used for gaming, VR and other programming in the space.
