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.”
