Oculus Quest VR Hands-on session next week.

The Makerspace now has 3 Oculus Quest VR Goggles, to help support various university projects. We will have them available in the Maker evening for the next few weeks, so why not drop in for hands-on experience?

The Maker evening is 6.30 in the Library C130 on Wednesday and is open for Staff and Students.

The headsets were funded by generous donations from Alumni and Friends of Lancaster University via the Friends Programme.

Lots of free maker books and videos for Lancaster Staff and Students from O’Reilly
