Oculus Rift, the future of 3D virtual reality and interactive video gaming, has arrived at the library. On Saturday, December 13 more than 115 customers, of all ages, dropped by the Marketplace for a hands-on demonstration of the head-mounted virtual reality device. Resembling a pair of ski goggles, the Oculus Rift headset displays a 3D experience that makes you feel like you're part of the game. Nearly 40 people had the opportunity to try it out first-hand. Here are some of their reactions:
“IT WAS AWESOME!!!”
“It was very nice being able to experience this piece of technology through the library.”
“Excellent! Thank you for offering this experience.”
