What is it?

The Virtual Academic Laboratory (VAL)​ allows non-technical users to analyze and manipulate 3D models in virtual reality using the Oculus Rift headset and a specialized motion tracking chair.

What can I use it for?

Any model or 3D asset, from any field of study can be uploaded in this virtual learning space. Users can then manipulate the scale or perspective of what they’re viewing, as well as annotate the object for use within projects, teaching, or class assignments.
